The present study was designed to examine the relationship between the development of schistosomal hepatosplenomegaly in Egyptian school children and the HLA antigens.
Two groups of schistosome-infected children with similar fecal egg counts were examined: one group (23 children) had no clinically demonstrable hepatosplenomegaly whereas all the children (28) in the second group suffered from liver enlargement.
Our results show that hepatosplenomegaly was related to the presence of two HLA antigens: HLA AI and B5.
