Abstract

Summary

  • 2.  Histological examination of the surgically removed spleen showed multiple abscess cavities and infarcts, together with numerous schistosome eggs and granulomas. Both and eggs were identified in the sections.
  • 3.  The schistosome eggs are believed to have reached the spleen as emboli via the splenic artery, after having escaped from the pulmonary into the systemic circulation.
