Anisakinae in Sanin Waters of the Japan Sea

  • J. Maejima


Two hundred and twenty two cases of stomach anisakiasis in the Sanin District were reported by Fukumoto in 1984 [3] at the 27th Meeting of the Japanese Society of Gastroenterological Endoscopy. The Sanin District is one of the most important foci for anisakiasis in Japan, though the incidence can not be clearly determined. Recently the use of endoscopy by medical pracitioners for the diagnosis and treatment of stomach anisakiasis has spread widely in the Sanin District. A total of 49 cases of stomach anisakiasis were reported between 1982 and April 1987 as sample data from a hospital clinic of internal medicine in Yon ago City by Shabana and Miura in 1987 [18]. This figure is equal to the total number of cases of stomach anisakiasis which occured in Nagano Prefecture prior to 1984.
