ABSTRACT

Schistosomiasis is a water borne snail mediated parasitic disease which affects over 200 million people residing in rural and agricultural areas. Cercariae is a larval stage of schistosomal or trematodal development, which are shed from infected snails in to water from where they penetrate the skin of people in the water. In other to detect the prevalence of schistosoma species cercariae, 205 freshwater snail intermediate hosts were collected from Ebele stream of OnuInyang area of Bende, Abia State. This was done from September to November 2013 and was screened. The highest collected snails numbered 97 (47.3%) of Oncomelania species followed by 50 (24.4%) of Bulimis globusits, 40 (19.5%) of Physa marmorata and the least collected of 18 (8.8%) of Biomphalaria glabrata. There was significant assoqiation in prevalence between the first collection and second collection and their examination for each month for the freshwater snails with calculated X2cai = 10.71, for the first collection and X“ca| = 88.99, (P < 0.05) second collection. Positive results were obtained having total number of cercariae infection in snails to be 86 (41.93% ofinfection). The research work revealed the prevalence of Schistosoma cercariae in some snails found inside the studied stream
