Abstract

An association between late-stage hepatosplenic schistosomiasis and endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) has been suggested but not proven. We present the case of a 12-year-old Ugandan boy with striking comorbidities, including advanced periportal fibrosis caused by Schistosoma mansoni infection and right ventricular EMF, and discuss the possible correlation between both diseases.
