Eggs travel to the liver or pass into the intestine or bladder. Rarely, eggs are found in the brain or spinal cord and can cause seizures, paralysis, or spinal cord inflammation. For people who are repeatedly infected for many years, the parasite can damage the liver, intestines, lungs, and bladder.

Symptoms of schistosomiasis are caused by the body's reaction to the eggs produced by worms, not by the worms themselves. (Source: excerpt from Schistosomiasis: DPD)
