“…In the present study, an association between schistosomiasis and salpingitis was found (p <0.05). (Feldmeier et al, 1998) suggests that, in some cases, salpingitis caused by the presence of parasite eggs in the ovarian tubes can lead to tubal lumen obstruction, leading to ectopic pregnancy and infertility, as reported by several authors (Badiale et al, 2005;Cabral et al, 1992;Hoffmann & Bauerfeind, 2003;Rosen & Kim, 1974). In addition, this inflammation could be associated with the lower abdomen pain described by 13% of the patients in the analyzed sample.…”

“…Lesions may also represent a risk factor for infections due to sexually transmitted diseases, especially human immunodeficiency virus and human papilloma virus 13,15,17 . In the ectopic form of schistosomiasis involving the uterine cervix, postcoital, intermenstrual and post-menstrual bleeding, vaginal discharge and dysmenorrhea can occur -signs that are not direct consequences of schistosomiasis but result from its association with cervicitis (Figure 2A) 18 . However, the involvement of the female genital tract is usually asymptomatic and the eggs are an occasional finding evidenced in histological examinations for different purposes 18 .…”

“…São consideradas formas ectópicas quando o elemento parasitário -ovos ou vermes adultos -se localiza fora do sistema porto-cava. Órgãos como pulmões, pâncreas, rins, linfonodos, tireoide, coração, assim como o sistema nervoso central, o sistema urinário e o trato genital feminino (colo uterino, corpo uterino, vagina, vulva, clitóris, uretra, ovário e tuba uterina) podem conter ovos do helminto [7][8][9][10][11][12] .…”
