Abstract

An association of schistosomiasis and endomyocardial fibrosis or cardiomyopathy has been suggested. Clinical, stool, abdominal ultrasound, electrocardiogram, and Doppler echocardiogram examinations were performed on 226 patients from an area endemic for schistosomiasis. The diagnosis of schistosomiasis was made in 152 patients (69%) but clinical, electrocardiographic, or Doppler echocardiographic evidence of a schistosome cardiomyopathy or endomyocardial fibrosis could not be detected in any patient.
