Abstract

This book has been written to give the physician a knowledge of the clinical features of malaria. In keeping with this expressed purpose the author has considered such subjects as Etiology, Epidemiology, and Pathology only briefly. There is a more detailed discussion of “Symptomatology” and “Treatment.”

A useful addition to a book of this type would be a concise chart of the differential characteristics of the various species of the Plasmodia that produce malaria in man. Such a chart would be of definite assistance to the physician in making a correct diagnosis of malaria.

The protean clinical manifestations of the three diseases grouped under the term malaria are completely considered. The various types of pernicious malaria are classified according to symptoms and are discussed.

Drugs and treatment methods are discussed. The physician who has not had experience with the treatment of malaria would welcome a definite recommended dosage regime of the various drugs employed.
