Abstract

The prevalence of schistosomiasis serologically based on detection of anti-soluble egg antigen (SEA)--IgM and/or IgG by ELISA technique was 68% of 380 cases, and 52.7% of 148 cases by stool examination. The serological technique seems to be more sensitive and able to detect early infection as well as detection of ectopic infection.
