To the Editor:—
On page 1045 of The Journal of July 17, 1954, included in the report entitled "Schistosomiasis Japonica Untreated Ten Years After Exposure," there are two photomicrographs purporting to show "schistosomes" in rectal tissue and liver tissue obtained by biopsy. The structures to which reference is made are ova of schistosomes and not the schistosomes themselves.
