Schistosomiasis risk is present in the Congo - Democratic Republic. The full extent of Schistosomiasis risk is unknown due to fragmentary research:
S. haematobium and S. mansoni are endemic in the provinces of Orientale, Maniema, Katanga, Kinshasa, and Bas-Congo. Cases are reported from Lake Kivu and Lake Tanganyika. S. intercalatum has been reported from the provinces of Orientale and Maniema.
The full extent of Schistosomiasis risk in the Congo - Democratic Republic is unknown. Additional snail intermediate hosts for S. mansoni: Biomphalaria choanomphala, Biomphalaria smithi and Biomphalaria stanleyi.
Risk of Schistosomiasis caused by: Schistosoma haematobium, Schistosoma mansoni, Schistosoma intercalatum
The main intermediate host snail is: Bulinus globosus, Bulinus africanus, Biomphalaria pfeifferi, see text above for additional intermediate snail host.
