Abstract: The Japanese Medical Group had engaged in clinic of the Rift-Valley Provincial General Hospital in Nakuru, Kenya, for about 1 year and 2 months. This is a report of the study of distribution of the diseases in Nakuru area, based on the cases experienced during that period and the list in the hospital. 1. The inpatients with pulmonary disease was the most in number and then those with digestive tract disease the second. The tropical disease was the 3rd even though Nakuru was not bad weather area. Many diseases due to bacterial and protozoal infection which are common in the underdeveloping countries, were seen. 2. As the respiratory disease, such diseases as the upper respiratory infection, pneumonia, tuberculosis were observed. Most of the agents to cause these diseases seemed to be not resistant to the antibiotics. As the digestive tract disease, acute gastrointestinal disorder including food poisoning and cirrhosis of the liver, as the cardiovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, as the hematologic disorder,anemia due to mulnutrition and sickle cell anemia were noted. 3. As the tropical disease, malaria, amebiasis, kala-azar, schistosomiasis, hydatid disease were seen. The last three diseases seemed to show different distribution in every tribe according to the hospital record. 4. As the nutritional disease, so-called "Kwashiorkor" and pellagra were noticed. 5. As the infectious disease, bacillary dysentery was the most, and tatanus, typhoid, brucellosis and leprosy were the next. For these diseases, the antibiotics was also remarkably effective for the treatment.
