Abstract: This study was conducted to assess the presence of schistosomiasis mansoni in the "Noroeste de Minas" mesoregion, an area considered non-endemic. A malacologic survey and parasitologic stool examinations were undertaken in 13 municipalities of the mesoregion. A sample of 3,283 primary school students was submitted to fecal examination by the Kato-Katz method. A total of 3,627 planorbids was collected and examined. The molluscs were identified as Biomphalaria straminea in seven municipalities (Unaí, Bonfinópoli… Show more

“…This species has been epidemiologically linked to the occurrence of cases of schistosomiasis in Paracatu in Minas Gerais (Carvalho et al, 1988). Working in non-endemic regions in Minas Gerais (Carvalho et al, 1994(Carvalho et al, , 1997(Carvalho et al, , 1998a (Pellon & Teixeira, 1950;Katz et al, 1978;Lambertucci et al, 1987). In endemic areas, large concentrations of these molluscs, together with other risk factors, favour the existence of cities with a high prevalence of schistosomiasis.…”

Finally, Drummond et al (2010) reported that the PCE examined 2,643,564 stool samples in the period of 2003-2007 and obtained 141,284 positives for S. mansoni in Minas Gerais.…”

“…O estudo da distribuição geográfica dos moluscos vetores da doença no Brasil deve persistir, mormente nas regiões onde sua importância epidemiológica ainda não está estabelecida. Aliás, vem sendo observado nas últimas décadas, um progresso nos estudos visando melhor conhecimento da fauna planorbídica 4 Na mesorregião do leste Alagoano, onde B. glabrata foi encontrada em 20 dos 28 municípios estudados, verifica-se abundância de poços e depois, de riachos. Poços e riachos não sujeitos à dessecação favorecem o desenvolvimento da espécie 32 .…”
