Non specific positive reactions were obtained in 4.9 per cent of a total of 101 cases of acute malaria.
Chronic malaria, in the small number reported (16) did not interfere with the Wassermann reaction.
The occurrence of non-specific reactions in malaria is believed to be due to the presence of an undetected increase in the anticomplementary factor.
I wish to thank the physicians and nurses of Ancon Hospital for their patient coöperation in this study.
