Abstract

PART I. VARIATION IN THE INTENSITY OF HAEMOGLOBINURIA FOLLOWING ADMINISTRATION OF QUININE BY REGULATION OF THE DOSAGE OF QUININE IN A SUSCEPTIBLE INDIVIDUAL

Whatever may be the mechanism of black-water fever, there is no doubt that there are many cases in which quinine is a determining factor and its administration may be followed by severe haemoglobinuria and sometimes with disastrous results, while in other cases, quinine has little or no influence upon the disease. The disease may therefore be classified under two heads:

    • ( in which the haemoglobinuria stops as soon as quinine is discontinued.
    • ( in which haemoglobinuria persists after the discontinuance of quinine and the condition may end fatally.
