World renowned Egyptian folk singer Saed Al Sughair diagnosed with bilharzia

The Egyptian folk singer who dazzled US audiences in 2006 has contracted a severe parasitic infection.

According to the London based Elaph, it is reported that folk singer Saed Al Sughair is suffering from bilharzia or as its also known, schistosomiasis.

The parasitic infection is the cause of recent health deterioration and internal bleeding. Schistosomiasis coincidentally took the life of another lengendary Egyptian singer, Abd Al Halim Hafez back in 1977.

Doctors say that Al Sughair’s disease is still in the initial stages and he will be on prolonged treatment in Germany.

Schistosomiasis is an acute or chronic disease, produced by parasites called Schistosoma. It is not a single disease, but a disease complex initiated by several different species of schistosomes. The three most important human species are Schistosoma mansoni, S. haematobium and S. japonicum.

It is 2nd only to malaria in terms of socioeconomic & public health importance, with 200 million people infected in approximately 75 countries.
