Abstract

Abstract The prevalence of proteinuria was very much higher in 2 Egyptian villages infected with S. haematobium than in one that was not, though otherwise socially and economically very similar. In many inhabitants the proteinuria was heavy, suggesting nephritis rather than urological abnormality or pyelonephritis. Patients presenting with the nephrotic syndrome have a significantly higher incidence of schistosomiasis than matched controls. These studies support the view that schistosomiasis is a cause of nephritis.
