Abstract: 1) Mass screening examinations were conducted on atomic bomb survivors in Nagasaki from 1954 to 1957. We found six cases of leukemia . 2) Five cases out of these six were chronic granulocytic leukemia and one was acute myeloblastic leukemia. 3) Three cases out of five chronic granulocytic leukemia are considered to have been in an early stage of this disease. Each of these cases showed leukocytosis, increase of basophils and a small number of immature cells in the peripheral blood. Decreased leueocyte alkaline phospatase and increased leukocyte catalase activity and increased basophils are important findings to be emphasized.
