Abstract: A survey of intestinal helminths from 1,366 post-mortem cases and 25,707 stool samplesof clinical specimens in a general hospital in Hong Kong was conducted from May 1950 through April 1968. The results showed that Trickuris tricniura, Clonorchis sinensis and Ascaris lumbricoides were the helminths commonly encountered. The prevalence of the infections was in the age group between 16-35. Comparing with records produced by other workers, the prevalence of clonorchiasis has not changed in the course of time. This is attributed to the habit of eating raw fish or undercooked fish imported from the endemic areas by the local people. On the other hand, infection with the soil transmitted nematodes was significantly decreased. Improvement of sanitation and urbanization of the rural community in recent year due to industrial developments contribute to the decrease. A rare case of Ancylostoma caninum infection in man was found. Egg count to assess the degree of infection with Clonorchis was also reported. / 1950年5月から1968年4月に至る間,香港の一総合病院Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kongにおいて,剖検1,366例,臨床険査糞便25,707件について行なった腸内蠕虫検査成績こついて述べた.当地の過去の文献と比較して肝吸虫は特に減っていない.これは当地の住民がこの附近に産する生魚を充分調理せずに食べる習慣を相変らず捨てきれない点に帰せられる.一方土壌に関係がある線虫は,近年各種企業の発達による衛生状態の改善と郊外地の都会化によって大いに減少した.このほか,稀有とみられるAncylostoma caninumの人体感染例と,虫卵算定による吸虫感染の程度にも言及した.
