Description:This boy infected with Schistosoma japonicum is showing signs of ascites, or a distended abdomen.
Due to the presence of Schistosoma japonicum in the patient’s liver, the resulting hepatic scarification causes portal hypertension, or obstructed blood flow through the organ with ensuing ascites, or build up of fluid in the abdominal cavity.
