Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cutaneous disease is a previously reported but unusual presentation for schistosomiasis. We report a case of Schistosoma haematobium infection that appeared 3 years after exposure, with skin lesions as the sole manifestation. The diagnosis was made on the basis of a routine skin biopsy and the patient did well after therapy with praziquantel. Dermatologists should be aware of this presentation of schistosomiasis when evaluating patients with unusual skin lesions who have traveled in areas where schistosomiasis is endemic.
