Abstract: An outline of the distribution of shigellae in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Continental China, the Philippines, and other countries to the south is presented in the form of a survey from data compiled in the literature in terms of the spectrum of Shigella group. Japan is the only country to date with S. sonnei in an absolute majority, though it is gradually increasing also in the other areas. S. dysenteriae and S. boydit are seldom detected in urban communities of Japan but the former is found at a rate of 5 to 10 per cent in the other countries except Taiwan and Hong Kong. The latter appears in the same proportion, particularly in Vietnam. In Japan, the change in the ratio of S. flexneri and S. sonnei has been demonstrable in minute, year by year steps since 1951. In Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China an identical change is taking place approximately within a given period of time. / 日本,韓国,台湾,香港,中国大陸,フィリピン,さらに南方各国の赤痢菌分布を赤痢菌群スペクトラムの形に整理した資料で概観した.現在の日本はS. sonneiが絶対多数を占める唯一の国である.S. dysenteriaeとS. boydiiは日本の大都市一帯ではほとんど検出されないが,前者は台湾と香港を除くほかの国々で5~10%に見出され,後者は特にベトナムに大体この率で存在する.S. flexneriの減少とS. sonneiの増加が,日本では1951年以降逐年明示され,韓国,台湾,香港,中国大陸でも,ある時期において大体示されていた.特に中国大陸の大都会の小児患者分離株ではこの傾向が日本より早期かつ顕著であった.
