This paper is by no means exhaustive of the data, but merely exploits some of the more evident relationships. In the cases examined, S. haematobium was commoner in both usual and unusual routes. As Blair points out, a considerable number of patients carried S. mansoni only. Nevertheless, the proportion of double infections and double negative persons is higher than would be expected in the absence of association between the two parasites. The rate of appearance of S. haematobium in stools shows a tendency to increase as intensity of infection increases when survey sites are compared. The occurrence of S. mansoni eggs in urines occurs primarily in people who are also infected with S. haematobium.
