To the Editor:

In the Indian Journal of Medical Research Vol. 10, 1922–23, p. 943, you will find described by me, from the Independent Brigade Laboratory of Aden, and , occurring in the same part of Arabia as has been surveyed recently by the U. S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 3, Cairo, Egypt (Robert E. Kuntz, George M. Malakatis, Deaner K. Lawless and Cloyce P. A. Strome, your journal, Vol. 2, p. 13; January, 1953).

Incidentally, I then (1923) expected that in all diagnoses of neoplasm in the bladder or rectum, schistosomes would be excluded. About 8 years later, however, when I was posted at the Haffkine Institute, Bombay, I received a specimen from Aden for confirming cancer. The patient (a princess) had been operated upon and had died. A heavy concentration of the schistosome ova was found in the tissue received.
