oa Southern African Journal of Gynaecological Oncology - Case of invasive adenocarcinoma of the cervix in a human immunodeficiency virus and schistosome co-infected patient : letter to the editor
I read with interest the case report on invasive adenocarcinoma of the cervix in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and schistosome co-infected patient. I would like to make some comments. Schistosomiasis is endemic in Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal. Prevention rests on two legs: water sanitation and the screening of schoolchildren. Because of the high cost of water sanitation, the main preventive measure is screening and treatment at school level. Unfortunately, no systematic prevention programme has been implemented in South Africa.
