Olivier reports on his investigations which were primarily planned to compare the production of the pulmonary lesions provoked by Schistosoma mansoni, S. japonicum and Schistosomatium douthitti in mice. The methods employed for exposing the mice to infection, for counting the pulmonary hacmonrrhages and for recovering the worms from the lungs and from the portal system, are described in detail.
