Abstract

Summary

Examination of the sputum of a group of 62 patients suffering from bilharziasis revealed schistosome eggs in 22 patients. In 14 of these cases the patients were suffering from hepatosplenomegaly, and radiological examination of their chests was suggestive of bilharziasis. The sputum should be examined on at least six consecutive days to discover such cases. All cases of hemoptysis in bilharziasis patients should be examined to exclude pulmonary infection due to schistosomes.
