Abstract : Bithionol has specific effect in paragonimiasis and is not toxic from the follow-up studies for one year after treatment with Bithinonol. This drug can be also effectively used for mass-treatment of paragonimiasis patients as outpatients. Criterion of cure of paragonimiasis judging by the disappearance of ova from the excreta is not always easy. The more exacting the criteria of cure, the longer the patients are followed up. However, serial examinations of the complement-fixation test after treatment is valuable for the criterion of cure. The new endemic area of paragonimiasis was found in west district of Shizuoka prefecture by using intradermal tes, complement-fixation test and stool examinations.
