Description "In certain regions of West Africa, onchocerciasis is a more important cause of blindness than trachoma. In some villages it is common to see young children leading blind adults; in highly endemic areas the blindness rate in men over 40 years may be 40% or higher." Transcribed from the Atlas of Tropical and Extraordinary Diseases, p. 373. Photo contributed by WHO.
Русский: Онхоцеркоз в Западной Африке часто ведёк к слепоте. В некоторых деревнях дети служат поводырями слепым взрослым.
