抄録: The study was carried out to determine the geographical distribution of Schistosoma haematobium infection in Kwale district, Kenya in 1981. Urine specimens were obtained from the pupils of the standard 4, 5 and 6 in 41 schools selected from 135 schools in Kwale district. Out of 2638 children, the ova of S. haematobium were detected in 41.2% by centrifugation of urine suggesting the widespread distribution of S. haematobium in the district. The infection rate was significantly higher in males than in females. Among four administrative divisions, the highest infection rate was observed in Kinango and a high endemic area was also found in Southern division. The infection rates in Kubo and Central divisions were relatively low. S. haematobium infection was highly prevalent in the southern part of coastal area in Kenya.
