Avian schistosomes and outbreaks of cercarial dermatitis.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Cercarial dermatitis (swimmer's itch) is a condition caused by infective larvae (cercariae) of a species-rich group of mammalian and avian schistosomes. Over the last decade, it has been reported in areas that previously had few or no cases of dermatitis and is thus considered an ...

Cercarial dermatitis, a neglected allergic disease.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Cercarial dermatitis (swimmer's itch) is a common non-communicable water-borne disease. It is caused by penetration of the skin by larvae (cercariae) of schistosomatid flukes and develops as a maculopapular skin eruption after repeated contacts with the parasites. The number of outbreaks ...

Cathepsins B1 and B2 of Trichobilharzia SPP., bird schistosomes causing cercarial dermatitis.
Last Updated: Nov 09, 2016

Trichobilharzia regenti and T. szidati are schistosomes that infect birds. although T. regenti/T. szidati can only complete their life cycle in specific bird hosts (waterfowl), their larvae-cercariae are able to penetrate, transform and then migrate as schistosomula in nonspecific ...

Cercarial dermatitis: a systematic follow-up study of human cases with implications for diagnostics.
Last Updated: Jan 11, 2019

Cercarial dermatitis (CD) is an allergic skin disease that rises in consequence of infection by invasive stages (cercariae) of trematodes of the family Schistosomatidae. CD has been considered a re-emerging disease, human cases have been reported from all continents, and tourism-threatening ...

Putative new genera and species of avian schistosomes potentially involved in human cercarial dermatitis in the Americas, Europe and Africa.
Last Updated: Dec 02, 2018

New larval avian schistosomes found in planorbid snails from Brazil and USA were used for morphological and molecular studies. Eggs with a distinctive long polar filament were found in ducks infected experimentally with Brazilian cercariae. Similar eggs were reported previously in ...

[A rare zoonosis in Hungary: cercarial dermatitis caused by Schistosoma turkestanicum blood-fluke].
Last Updated: Jul 06, 2017

Several trematodes that parasitize vertebrate animals utilize swimming aquatic larvae to infect the host percutaneously. The most important ones among these parasites are the blood-flukes of birds and mammals comprising species that are also zoonotic. Within this latter group are ...
