  • Description: To the Editor: The origin of the human cases of urinary schistosomiasis observed in France was recently identified (1,2). None of these patients had traveled to a disease-endemic area, but all had vacationed in Corsica and had swum in the Cavu River, near Porto-Vecchio in southern Corsica. The letter by Berry et al. to Emerging Infectious Diseases (2) reminded us that bovine schistosomiasis had been reported in Corsica in the past, up through the 1960s, in the same area.
