In: Emerging infectious Diseases, Vol. 21, No. 10: pp. 1865-1868 [PDF, 534kB]


We report 11 cases of schistosomiasis in international travelers who had bathed in rivers in Corsica, France, during 2012-2014. The infections were diagnosed in 2014 and reported to the Geo Sentinel Surveillance Network and European Travel Medicine Network. Travelers can be sentinels for emerging infections;thus, this situation warrants a concerted human and veterinary epidemiologic response.
