The objective of this retrospective study is to describe imported schistosomiasis in children in the Paris region between 2010 and 2015. Forty children with a diagnosis of schistosomiasis were included. Thirty-seven (93%) had a chronic urinary form with hematuria. The lost-to-follow up rate for the second consultation was 25%. The diagnosis and management of imported schistosomiasis must be improved—notably by raising awareness among clinicians and providing families with more information.
