Abstract

1. The authors have found Coenurus serialis in which many daughter cysts are contained, occurring in the subcutaneous tissues of hares. This finding is new to Japan. 2. Morphological and histological descriptions of the daughter cysts are presented. 3. A new important fact is described, that the histological structure of the daughter cyst wall is similar to that of the mother bladder turned inside out. 4. Because of recent discoveries, the authors feel that the old knowledge of various bladder worms should be reviewed and the daughter cyst should be examined histologically.
