Abstract

Responses of parasitemia and fever in vivax malaria to standard doses of chloroquine and different dosage schedules of co-trimoxazole were compared in 165 children. Though both the drugs were effective, chloroquine was significantly faster in clearing parasitemia than all the dosage schedules of co-trimoxazole. No statistically significant difference was observed in rapidity of defervescence between chloroquine and the two high daily dosage regimens of co-trimoxazole. Gastrointestinal intolerance was persistantly higher with chloroquine. Asymptomatic sulphonamide crystalluria was seen in a large number of cases receiving the two high daily dosage schedules of co-trimoxazole.
