1. A case of pure bovis bilharziasis occurring in the urinary tract of a European schoolboy is reported. 2. The appearance of a single case of fuis infection in an area where snails are known to be heavily infected with bovis confirms the rarity of its incidence in humans. 3. Treatment with Miracil D was successful as evidenced by cystoscopic criteria, negative urine examinations and eosinophil reduction.
