MAGALHAES, Luiz A.; ALCANTARA, Francisco G. de e CARVALHO, José F. de. The distribution of extra-hepatic schistosomotic lesions in mice infected by BH and SJ strains of Schistosoma mansoni. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1979, vol.13, n.4, pp. 326-334. ISSN 1518-8787. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101979000400007.
The distribution of schisiosomotic granulomae in the spleen, lungs, kidneys, heart, and intestines of mice infected by BH and SJ strains of S. mansoni was studied. No great difference was found in the distribution of granulomae of the two strains; however, the number of lesions caused by the BH strain was greater in the spleen and the lungs.
