The Treatment of Malaria

Nature volume 101, pages 315316 (20 June 1918) | Download Citation



THE treatment of malaria has engaged the attention of the medical department of the War Office since the outbreak of the war. So soon as cases of this disease began to return to England malaria hospitals were opened, and in certain large hospitals special wards were set apart so that all patients could be concentrated and treated by physicians with special knowledge of malaria. This branch of the medical work was placed under the supervision of Col. Sir Ronald Ross, K.C.B., F.R.S., consultant in malaria, War Office, and an interim report now published by this officer gives the results of treatment of a number of cases in four of the hospitals under his control up to the date of publication.
