Testicular schistosomiasis as differential diagnosis for testicular nodules: a case report.
 

Author(s): Tiago Neves Ferreira, Hana Caroline Morais Higa, Ronaldo Garcia Rondina, Márcio Maia Lamy Miranda, Marcos Lyra Kaddoun, Maria Carmen Ferreira Lopes Silva Santos, Rodrigo Stênio Moll de Souza

Journal: Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop.. ;48(4):501-3.

Circulating antigen tests and urine reagent strips for diagnosis of active schistosomiasis in endemic areas.
 

Author(s): Eleanor A Ochodo, Gowri Gopalakrishna, Bea Spek, Johannes B Reitsma, Lisette van Lieshout, Katja Polman, Poppy Lamberton, Patrick M M Bossuyt, Mariska M G Leeflang

Journal:

 

Point-of-care (POC) tests for diagnosing schistosomiasis include tests based on circulating antigen detection and urine reagent strip tests. If they had sufficient diagnostic accuracy they could replace conventional microscopy as they provide a quicker answer and are easier to use.
