Abstract

This work focused on Schistosoma spp. as a potential agent of gross haematuria in non endemic areas. This change in epidemiology is mainly due to recent migratory flows. Moreover it emphasized the needfor cultural action (aimed at Urologists, Dermatologists, General Practitioners and Emergency Medicine doctors) to provide the elements for a correct and timely diagnosis. But the most important issue raised by this paper is the call for a fast track supply of drugs (usually not available in Italy) to field operators for treating tropical diseases.
