Schistosoma mekongi(redirected from S mekongi)
the Mekong schistosome, a species described from the Mekong delta in southern Laos and northern Cambodia. Infection rates are highest for ages 7-15; dogs appear to be the chief reservoir host; the intermediate host snail is the operculid snail, Tricula aperta. Pathology is similar to but generally less severe than that of Schistosoma japonicum.
