Intestinal obstruction caused by chronic schistosomiasis infection is rare, with only 12 previously recorded cases in the literature. We report the first recorded case presenting to a European hospital. A 36-year-old Caucasian man, who was born and lived in the UK, presented with small bowel obstruction. He had visited China and Indonesia 8 years previously. At laparotomy, there was an obstructing inflammatory mass close to the ileocaecal junction and several small bowel strictures. Initially he was thought to have Crohn's disease. However, subsequent histology diagnosed intestinal schistosomiasis.
