Jonathan Forman Prize in USA was awarded to S. Ishikawa in 1996 for the works of chronic OP intoxication. 3, the Saku patients experienced an excessive tonic state of the parasympathetic nervous system (cholinergic state). Acetylcholine accumu­ lated at the nerve ending site, causing a muscarinic and nicotinic intoxication [16]. Although the ChE level was lower in the patient group than in the control, the reduc­ tion was seen in only 30% of patients and the remaining 70% of patients had nor­ mal values.

This phenomenon is called spreading. A patient will be frightened. If a CS patient’s awareness and avoidance of chemical substance exposure progresses, it will be a natural reaction to the diagnosis of CS. However, I am undecided whether one should inform a patient that symptoms may increase in the future because such an explanation may amplify a patient’s uneasiness. A CS patient’s fear of insecurity is strong [1]. Seventy percent of CS patients mostly recover after medical treatment. Of course, the recovery means that a patient needs to carefully avoid chemical substance exposure in our clinic, environmental.
