Schistosoma haematobium infection is mainly associated with urinary schistosomiasis. Here, we describe two cases of S haematobium infection in workers returning to China from Tanzania and Angola. They had hematuria and were misdiagnosed as having tuberculosis or tumor of the bladder. The diagnosis was established by discovery of eggs in the urine.
