TREATMENT OF NEUROSYPHILIS BY MALARIA: FURTHER OBSERVATIONS

TREATMENT OF NEUROSYPHILIS BY MALARIA: FURTHER OBSERVATIONS Abstract In May, 1925, we reported the first year's observation of thirty-five cases of neurosyphilis treated with malaria,1 as suggested by Wagner von Jauregg.2 At that time we did not draw conclusions but attempted only to report our brief experience with the method. Some of the patients had shown such definite improvement one or two months after the course of malaria that a summary of the results was included, but we made no effort to interpret their significance. We felt that conclusions should be drawn only after treating a larger series of patients and observing them for several years. In this paper we shall report the second year's observations on the original thirty-five patients treated (first group) and add sixty-five additional cases (second group) in which treatment has been given during the year just past. The bulk of this report will be the result of the continued observations on References 1. O'Leary, P. A.; Goeckerman, W. H., and Parker, S.

Abstract

Abstract In May, 1925, we reported the first year's observation of thirty-five cases of neurosyphilis treated with malaria,1 as suggested by Wagner von Jauregg.2 At that time we did not draw conclusions but attempted only to report our brief experience with the method. Some of the patients had shown such definite improvement one or two months after the course of malaria that a summary of the results was included, but we made no effort to interpret their significance. We felt that conclusions should be drawn only after treating a larger series of patients and observing them for several years. In this paper we shall report the second year's observations on the original thirty-five patients treated (first group) and add sixty-five additional cases (second group) in which treatment has been given during the year just past. The bulk of this report will be the result of the continued observations on References 1. O'Leary, P. A.; Goeckerman, W. H., and Parker, S. T.: Treatment of Neurosyphilis by Malaria: A Preliminary Report , Arch. Dermat. & Syph. 13: 301-320 ( (March) ) 1926. 2.
