    • 3 major species:

      • S. haematobium

      • S. mansoni

      • S. japonicum


    Schistosomiasis
    Schistosomiasis

    • Second most prevalent tropical disease after malaria.

    • 500-600 million people worldwide at risk

    • 200 million infected worldwide: 120 million symptomatic and 20 million have severe disease

    • 80% of those infected are in sub-Saharan-Africa: annual mortality in sub-Saharan Africa is estimated to exceed 150,000 (WHO)


    Schistosomiasis exposure risk
    Schistosomiasis Exposure Risk

    Freshwater (saltwater is safe)

    • Swimming

    • Paddling

    • Splashing

    • Washing

    • Showers

    • Drinking


    Infection
    Infection

    • Infection is usually asymptomatic, especially in residents of endemic areas

    • Symptomatic infection:

      - “Swimmers itch” soon after infection

      - Katayama fever at least 6 weeks after infection - immunological reaction to soluble egg antigen, as the worms begin to lay eggs.


    S. mansoni

    S. haematobium

    S. japonicum



    Schistosomiasis risk reduction
    Schistosomiasis Risk Reduction

    Avoid water contact

    No evidence for efficacy of:

    • Brisk towelling after water contact

    • DEET before water contact

    • Waterproof sun cream

      …but it might be worth a try!


    Schistosomiasis diagnosis
    Schistosomiasis Diagnosis

    At least 8 weeks after last exposure

    • Katayama fever (3%)

      Asymptomatic screening:

    • Serology

    • Stools x 3

    • Urine – 24 hour collection


    Schistosomiasis treatment
    Schistosomiasis Treatment

    • Praziquantel 40mg/kg on one day

    • Side effects very rarely reported

    • 80% effective (reduction in egg counts, endemic areas)

    • Serology remains positive



    Rabies risk
    Rabies Risk

    Infected saliva –warm blooded animal

    • Bite

    • Lick

    • Scratch


    Rabies prevention
    Rabies Prevention

    • Avoid contact

    • Pre-exposure vaccination: 0, 7, 21 or 28 days


    Rabies wound management
    Rabies Wound Management

    • Wash by flushing under running tap for 10 minutes then wash with soap or water

    • Do not scrub, rub or squeeze

    • Apply disinfectant: 40-70% alcohol, tincture or aqueous povidine iodine, cetrimide

    • Do not suture, if possible


    Rabies post exposure prophylaxis
    Rabies Post Exposure Prophylaxis

    Following pre-exposure vaccinations:

    • 2 doses of rabies vaccine on days 0 and 3

      No pre-exposure vaccination:

    • HRIG (human rabies immunoglobulin) 20iu/kg

      plus

    • 5 doses vaccine on days 0, 3, 7, 14, 28


    Rabies why have pre travel vaccination
    Rabies - Why have pre-travel vaccination?

    • Less likely to die of rabies

    • Less stressful

    • HRIG world shortage

    • Fewer post exposure vaccinations


    “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” 

    Mark Twain
