Show Summary Details

Preview

In recent years, parasitic diseases have increased especially in non-tropical or subtropical countries. We present a case of an 11-year-old boy from Guinea with a rectal polyp parasitized by Schistosoma haematobium and Trichuris trichiura. This parasitic association had never been reported in our country or in Europe.
