In a study of bilharzia in a school where 60% of the children were found to be infected with Schistosoma haematobium, a comparison was made between the infected and uninfected children in respect of Hb. percentage, weight, height, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and abnormalities found on clinical examination. Blood urea was determined in the infected children only, and were all found normal. Finally backwardness at school was compared between the two groups. The results of the examinations showed no significant difference between the infected and uninfected children.
