This monograph is a series of nineteen individual articles by twenty-six authors, all dealing with some aspect of schistosomiasis in Southeast Asia. With one exception the articles report observations that have not been published elsewhere. The exceptional one is a brief account of clinical studies on ninety people at Khong Island, half of whom were passing eggs in the feces and twenty-five of whom had hepatosplenomegaly, which had been reported in 1976. A preface written by Editors J. I. Bruce and S. Sornmani, Associate Editor H. L. Asch, and Assistant Editor K. A. Crawford, gives historical notes on the Mekong schistosome and a summary of differences between Katsurada, 1904 and Voge, Bruckner and Bruce, 1978. It also prepares the reader to accept either of two different generic names for the vector snail, or , both of which were allowed to be used, as preferred by the various authors.
