A boy who is fond of swimming in a pond finds himself passing urine with traces of blood. He is likely to have contracted…

A. schistosomiasis

B. onchocerciasis

C. poliomyelitis

D. salmonellosis

QUICK ANSWER…

A

DETAILS…  

Urine with traces of blood is identified as the symptoms, and the causative agent most likely from the pond. The first suspect will be a disease caused by a worm.

Now to the right option…

  1. Option A is very correct; schistosomiasis is tropical disease caused by worms such as flukes, and which often borrow through the skin into the liver where their damage may cause ulcers or blood in stool and urine. The boy must have acquired the parasite from the pond.
  2. Option B is incorrect; onchocerciasis also called river blindness, is a disease acquired from blackfly bites, and whose symptoms does not include bloodied urine.
  3. No, poliomyelitis is a viral infectious disease which mostly affect and cause paralysis in children, its symptom is not bloodied urine but paralysis. C is incorrect.
  4. Actually, D is also incorrect; salmonellosis is a bacterial infection that is gotten, not from swimming in ponds, but by eating contaminated food. Its symptom includes diarrhea, fever and not bloodied urine.

QUICK ADVICE…

You may please note that:

  • Two requirements must be met here, the boy must be infected at the pond, and one of the symptoms must include blood in urine.
