Abstract

Infection with Schistosoma hematobium is common in immigrants from tropical Africa and commonly presents with painless hematuria. Since chronic, heavy infection can lead to significant morbidity, it is imperative for clinicians who serve the immigrant and refugee population to become familiar with this traditionally exotic disease. Increased awareness will allow earlier diagnosis and treatment of infection, avoiding complications and minimizing expensive and invasive diagnostic procedures.
