Risk factors for Schistosoma mansoni infection were identified using a 1:1 matched case-control design.
The work was conducted in the municipality of Pedro de Toledo, Sao Paulo State, Brazil, an area where the snail host is Biomphalaria tenagophila.
Information on water contact patterns, knowledge, attitudes and pratices (kap), socioeconomic and sanitary conditions were obtained by mean of questionnaires.
The crude odds ratio estimates and the adjusted odds ratio estimates using the logistic regression model are presented.
Most of the examined individuals admitted recent water contacts (90.6% of the cases).
The most frequent reason for contact was swimming, playing and fishing and the preferential site of contact was the river.
