    Background: Although methods of schistosomiasis transmission are well documented, limited evidence exists on transmission patterns across gender and class. This study aims at joining force to the efforts trying to situate water-related behavior relevant to the transmission of schistosomiasis to its socio-cultural context. It does so by targeting gender variations in relation to knowledge and behavior relevant to the transmission.
    Methods: Fifty five boys and girls at basic school aged (8-15) at Habiba basic school at Kamleen Locality were chosen purposively in accordance to the written consent they provided. The study implemented ethnographic methods for collecting data.
    Results: Knowledge about the pathological causes of schistosomiasis among both boys and girls was lacking but the clinical manifestation is partially recognized (blood in urine and painful passing of urine), yet childrenís explanation of these symptoms interfered with cultural elements in the context of the village and how the villagers relate to their social world in general. Considerable variation in relations to water-contact behavior associated with gender and types of activity conducted by each group were recorded.
    Conclusion: One point of departure between boys and girls at school age in relations to the schistosomiasis infection was that boys reflected knowledge about the snail ecology in water; however association of such knowledge to health or schistosomiasis transmission was missing in the case of both categories of informants.

    Teratoma is a tumor usually seen in children and adolescents and is composed of a mixture of embryonal and adult tissues derived from all three germ layers: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. According to the current WHO grading system classification of the tumor consists of mature/benign and immature/malignant, depending on the presence and abundance of immature component [1,2,11,12].
    The size and stage correlate to the survival. The microscopic grade of the primary tumor best determines the likelihood of extra-ovarian spread and the grade of the metastases correlate best with the subsequent course. Indeed, a thorough tumor sampling is necessary for accurate grading. Here we report a case of high-grade immature teratoma in an 18-year-old girl.

    Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) are a diverse group of diseases that prevail in tropical and subtropical conditions in 149 countries, affecting more than 1 billion people. Among the NTDs classified by WHO are listed parasites such as trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, dracunculiasis, filariasis, onchocerciasis and geohelminthiases. The number of people affected by these diseases is higher in regions of greater poverty, and there is a direct relationship between the prevalence of these diseases and the human development index (HDI) [1].
