Desafio de un mito. A retrospective study into printed histology reports from January to December was performed using a standardised data chart, designed through specialist consensus.

A Chi Square Independence Test was conducted as primary outcome measure. Of the cases, Significant differences in age distribution were noted between the group with schistosomiasis and the group without.

Ee study demostrates that there is no association between the presence of schistosoma haematobium ova in the appendix and histologically confirmed acute appendicitis in the rural Eastern Cape, South Africa, a region with a high prevalence of schistosoma haematobium infection.

The prevalence of schistosomiasis is dependant on the presence of a body of water, faecal contamination of that water supply and the presence of a suitable snail host. It has been shown that the implementation of irrigation systems create new habitats for the snails hosts, leading to higher transmission rates and more transmission sites.

Further water resource development reduce infection paradoxically, through a parallel improvement of socioeconomic circumstances and a reduction in the contact with raw water supplies. Better care for those who still manage to get infected can also be obtained improving medical infrastructure 3.

Of these, 43 were found in appendicis with acute inflammatory infiltrates, with the remaining 12 cases showing chronic granulomatous reaction without any acute inflammatory infiltrate. None of the normal appendices had schistosoma ova as an incidental finding. See figures 3 to 6. Both sexes were equally represented under the appendectomy cases, males The patients in our series had a wide age distribution of 2 months to 75 years, with an average of 19 years 4 months, and a standard deviation SD of 12 years.


These parameters were similar for males and females Table 2. In both sexes the age group most affected was the 10 to 14 years 11 months group, with the 5 year to 9 year 11 months old female patients relatively more affected than the males of the same age Graphs 2 to 4. The appendices demonstrating schistosomiasis on histology tended to be removed from younger patients, with an average age of 15 years 6 months, with a narrower SD of 5 years 3 months.

The female patients with schistosoma in their appendices were on average more than two years younger than the male patients Table 2. Two schistosoma ova appear below surrounded by inflammatory cells with predominance of eosinophils, mainly towards the right. No signs of acute inflammation or schistosoma are seen. Possibility of either viral infection or typhoid fever should be considered.

The normal histology of appendix has been replaced by acute inflammatory cell and suppurative necrosis. The amorphous mass on the right is part of a fecalith. No frank ova os schistosoma is seen. No se observan huevos de esquistosoma. All ages is in years. The sex of 8 patients was not indicated on the laboratory request form. Multiple organs can be affected in schistosomiasis.

The appendix is usually affected by schistosoma mansoni, but it is not unknown for schistosoma haematobium to affect the appendix in endemic areas In our centre, we have found schistosoma haematobium ova in the uterus, vulva, fallopian tubes, rectum, lung as well as in the appendix Complications of schistosomiasis include cerebral granulomatous disease, transverse myelitis with flaccid paraplegia, colonic polyposis, portal hypertension, pulmonary hypertension, glomerulonephritis and cystitis which can progress to bladder cancer.

The role of schistosoma in the pathogenesis of appendicitis has long been debated. The clinician could easily be lured into thinking that histologically proven schistosomiasis of the appendix is a rare finding, based on the limited literature available on this topic.

Indeed, individually reported cases are few and far in between.

These reports typically detail the finding of schistosomiasis of the appendix in a traveler returning to Europe, or pathology seen in an immigrant from sub-Saharan Africa 7, 8, 9, 10, The reports vary from dismissing the schistosomiasis as an incidental finding, to prematurely assigning a causative role.

A large retrospective study 12 of appendectomy specimens conducted in the Asir region in the southwestern part of Saudi Arabia, an endemic area for schistosomiasis, demonstrated schistosomiasis in 63 1. Migrants from the African country Egypt had the highest incidence. Another Saudi study produced similar results A Nigerian study of appendectomy specimens confirmed a high frequency of 32 6. This is similar to our study demonstrating a frequency of 5.

Both schistosoma haematobium and mansoni are not kind apenfice the colon, with their local effects previously though to play a role in the pathogenesis of acute appendicitis.

It is known that parasitic infections like schistosomiasis elicit a eosinophilic response which causes local tissue damage mainly through the release of cationic proteins from the eosinophil granules, as well as by releasing leukotrienes, platelet-activating factor, reactive oxygen species and lysosomal hydrolases.



A number of other mechanism are also involved: It has recently been shown that intestinal schistosomiasis in an animal model results in structural, functional and immunological changes in the affected colon, most notably decreased gastrointestinal transit and increased colonic contractility Our study goes further and conclusively demostrates that there is no association in our clinical setting between the presence of schistosoma ova in the appendix and the histologically confirmed acute inflammatory infiltrate in appendices which were removed after a clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis, in contrast with previously unproven theories.

Our patient group with schistsomiasis were on average 3 years 11 months younger than the patients without. Recent work have shown that the colons of juvenile rhesus monkeys are more severely affected than those of adult monkeys, while there was no significant difference in worm burden.

The juveniles had a more intense and advanced chronic granulomatous response to trapped schistosoma ova Could it be that this intense reponse presented similar to acute appendicitis clinically, explaining our observation of a younger age of presentation?

We have demostrated that there is no association between the presence of schistosoma haematobium ova in the appendix and histologically confirmed acute appendicitis in the rural Eastern Cape, South Africa, a region with a high prevalence of schistosoma haematobium infection. Schistosomiasis of the appendix causes a chronic granulomatous reaction in the appendix, but without any association with acute appendicitis.

Indeed, schistosoma ova found in the setting of acute appendicitis seem to be an incidental finding in our setting.

Nevertheless, all health workers should be reminded of the importance of following up histology results, especially in our region with many barriers to communication and transport.

Schistosomiasis, a relatively easily treated disease, has many complications, though acute appendicitis seems not to be one of them.
