In unisexual infections with an Iranian strain of Schistosoma haematobium in white mice, female worms matured normally and deposited eggs in the liver but these eggs did not contain miracidia. Both female and male worms grew to more than half the length of corresponding mated worms in bisexual infections, and males acquired the normal number of testes.
