The presence of haematuria and proteinuria, detected by reagent strips, was compared with Schistosoma haematobium egg counts in the urines of human subjects from two epidemiologically distinct areas in Ghana and Zambia. In children and adults in both areas, the individual or combined semiquantitative levels of proteinuria and haematuria were related directly to increasing urinary egg counts. In both areas the presence of blood in the urine was highly specific (greater than 85%) and sensitive… CONTINUE READING
