Exoerythrocytic Schizogony in Bat Malaria

Nature volume 166, page 155 (22 July 1950) | Download Citation



MALARIA parasites of the epauletted fruit bats of tropical Africa have been described by Rodhain from the Belgian Congo, by Rousselot from French West Africa, and by myself from Kenya. Dr. R. B. Heisch, of the Division of Insect-borne Diseases, Kenya, noted the presence of a similar parasite in Epomophorus wahlbergi and was kind enough to have a number of these bats collected from near Nairobi for me when I was on a visit to the East African territories.
