Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Epidemiologic surveys were carried on 24,619 Cambodian refugees in Khao-I-Dang holding center, employing a skin test as a screening device to determine the prevalence of schistosomiasis. The diagnosis of Schistosoma mekongi was confirmed in 62 by positive stool examination. The majority of the positive cases came from Battambang province which is probably a new endemic area of schistosomiasis in Cambodia.
