(1) Malaria in Macedonia: Clinical and Haematological Features and Principles of Treatment (2) Anti-Malaria Work in Macedonia among British Troops

Abstract

(1) THIS work deals with the parasitology of malaria, the associated clinical manifestations and the treatment, the main and more important part being the clinical. In the section on parasitology the authors enlarge on the importance of parthenogenesis of the gametes as the cause of the persistence of the infection and of the relapses. As J. D. Thomson has pointed out, the so-called parthenogenesis of the malarial parasite is based on a misconception of Schaudinn's of what the term “parthenogenesis” is, and on an error in interpreting the facts observed by him.
