During my study of schistosomiasis we were wondering about different body cavities that schistosomiasis can live in. The above photos is from a male patient that complained of oral sores after kissing a female that has been diagnosed with schistosomiasis. The sores would emerge within 12 hours of kissing with inflamed tissue and two small marks and blood. I propose that this is a miracidia form of schistosomiasis and is acting as it would in fresh water with a snail. The saliva is acting as an medium equal to water where they are passed between people. The mouth has what this parasite needs there is moisture and supply of blood.
