|Contribution||Described human syndrome known as Katayama disease, subsequently found to be schistosomiasis.|
|Notes||D. Fujii (pen-name Yoshinao). Katayama was a very small village in a rice-growing area of Japan. Fujii recognized the association of the disease with wading in rice paddies. Apparently not listed in Garrison & Morton.|
