Malaria Therapy in General Paralysis: being Observations on Fifty Cases treated at the County Mental Hospital, Whittingham

  • A. R. Grant and J. D. Silverston
Extract

In the early part of 1922 our attention was drawn to the excellent results claimed by Wagner-Jauregg (1), Gerstmann (2), Weygandt (3) and others in the treatment of general paralysis by the inoculation of malaria. Since July 31, 1922, over fifty general paralytics have been subjected to this form of fever therapy, and in this contribution we propose to give a brief summary of our observations and com elusions.
