Abstract

Thirty raccoons (Procyon lotor) from three counties in east-central and southeast Kansas (USA) were examined for schistosomiasis. Eleven (37%) of the raccoons had adult schistosomes identified as Heterobilharzia americana present in the mesenteric vessels, histopathological lesions compatible with schistosomiasis, or both. This represents the first report of H. americana in Kansas and in the central United States.
