ABSTRACT

Proteinuria was detected in 24.7% of 89 individuals with hepatosplenic schistosomiasis and in only 4.6% of 86 subjects with mild hepato-intestinal schistosomiasis, all of them living in comparable conditions in two endemic areas in Bahia, Brazil. From nine individuals who hadproteinuria over30 mg/100ml, eight had hepatosplenic schistosomiasis. These findings maybe related to the presence of schistosomal nephropathy and reveal the significance of this condition in thefield in endemic areas of schistosomiasis.

Keywords: Schistosoma mansoni. Proteinuria. Field study. Schistosomal nephropathy.


RESUMO

Proteinúria foi detectada em 24,7% de 89 pacientes com a forma hepatoesplênica da esquistos- somose e em apenas 4,6% de 86 pacientes com a forma hepatointestinal dessa parasitose. Todos os pacientes viviam em condições epidemiológicas semelhantes em duas áreas endêmicas da Bahia, Brasil. Dos nove indivíduos que tinham proteinúria acima de 30mg/100ml, oito tinham a forma hepatoesplênica da doença. Estes achados podem estar relacionados à presença de uma glomerulopatia esquistossomótica e mostra o significado desta condição no campo, em áreas endêmicas de esquistos- somose.

Palavras-chave: Schistosoma mansoni. Proteinúria. Estudo de campo. Nefropatia esquistossomótica.
