oa Central African Journal of Medicine - The distribution of viable and non-viable eggs of Schistosoma haematobium in the urine

Volume 15, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0008-9176

It is suggested that the ratio of the different egg categories may indicate the duration of the infection, since the category of the egg may indicate its age.
