Abstract

At the outset of the discussion regarding the inoculation theory of malarial fever through the agency of the mosquito, it seems best to spend a passing word in giving credit to those who have labored to bring about a revolution of ideas in regard to the etiology of this disease. The man who principally formulated the theory that the mosquito acted as the intermediate host in the life history of the malarial parasite was Patrick Manson, of England.
