                         patients infected with Schistosoma mansoni before and after 
                         treatment as well as to define areas of disease transmission at 
                         the location. The study was carried out in Pedra Preta, a village 
                         in the municipality of Montes Claros, Minas Gerais in the year 
                         2008. The Kato Katz technique was applied for the parasitological 
                         survey. A GPS receiver was used for the spatial location of the 
                         participants residences and possible breeding sites of 
                         Biomphalaria spp. snails. A total number of 55 participants 
                         infected with schistosomiasis were identified among the 
                         inhabitants of the locality, indicating a prevalence of 28%. The 
                         patients were re-examined 30, 90, 180 and 360 days after treatment 
                         with Praziquantel and showed a prevalence of 13%, 2%, 46% and 19%, 
                         respectively. All infected patients are living in a mean distance 
                         of 250-1000 meters to the same little pond, where a considerable 
                         number of B. glabrata was found. This little pond is used for 
                         recreational activities and its drainage cuts a road that serves 
                         as passage for the residents. The results show that GIS is a 
                         useful tool in the control of schistosomiasis, which can reduce 
                         costs and lead the fieldwork.",
