Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Actually, there are a few conditions which can cause this sort of problem. The first one which comes to mind is that she could have developed urinary schistosomiasis. This is a condition in which a parasite known as Schistosoma can be present in the blood vessels surrounding the bladder and it can cause eggs to be secreted into the urine. It sometimes may lead to the development of worms being passed in the urine. The diagnosis is made with an abdominal ultrasound and also with a cystoscopy if necessary and then it can be treated with anti parasitic drugs which can be effective in killing off the parasites.

The other possibility is that of urinary myiasis, this is a condition in which the fly larvae are present inside the bladder. This is a relatively rare condition which occurs more in children belonging to the African continent. This can lead to infections of the eye and other organs as well as the bladder. Again a simple cystoscopy (camera inserted into the bladder) can be diagnostic and it would be treated with a drug called ivermectin which would lead to the elimination of the larvae within a week in most cases.

I think you need to see an infectious disease specialist who would be easily able to diagnose this problem.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
