S. haematobium egg-injected bladders develop fibrosis.

Egg-injected bladders demonstrate histologically-apparent fibrosis within granulomata (right column, sections from week 3 post-egg injection bladder, Masson's Trichrome stain, collagen stains blue; left column, sections from week 3 post-control vehicle injection bladder show no granuloma and normal collagen staining pattern).
