The three major species are Schistosoma mansoni (Africa and South America), S. japonicum (East Asia), and S.

haematobium (Africa and the Middle East). The two minor species are S. mekongi (Laos, Cambodia) and S. intercalatum (West and Central Africa). The parasites that cause Schistosomiasis is a disease that is caused by parasites (genus Schistosoma) that enter humans by attaching to the skin, penetrating it, and then migrating through the venous system to the portal veins where the parasites produce eggs and eventually, the symptoms of acute or chronic disease (for example, fever, abdominal discomfort, blood in stools).Schistosomiasis, also known as bilharzia, is an infection caused by a parasitic worm that lives in fresh water in subtropical and tropical regions.
