Caption

Schistosome parasite in the liver. Light micrograph of liver tissue with a Schistosoma mansoni parasite (centre). This parasitic trematode worm causes schistosomiasis, the second most prevalent tropical disease in the world after malaria. The worm larvae enter the body through contact with infested water. They then mature in the intestines before laying eggs around the body. A female Schistosome can produce up to 300 eggs per day. Symptoms of schistosomiasis include fever, chills, and blood in the urine and stools.
