Malaria : Etiology, Pathology, Diagnosis, Prophylaxis, and Treatment (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Malaria: Etiology, Pathology, Diagnosis, Prophylaxis, and Treatment There IS little doubt that the eradication of malaria is the most serious problem that confronts the sanitarian in all tropical and sub-tropical countries. The completion of the Panama Canal will forever be a monument to progressive sanitation which the Amer ican people may point to with pride. Under the splendid general ship of Colonel W. C. Gorgas, malaria and other tropical diseases have: been successfully coped with, some to the point of complete eradication, others to such an extent as not to seriously interfere with the mechanical work incident to the building of the Canal. The most important disease in the' latter category is malaria. It is doubtful if there is any disease as easy to diagnosticate as malaria, if proper attention be paid to diagnostic methods, or if there is any that responds as surely to treatment, if proper treat ment be instituted; for it must be remembered that quinin is one of a very few therapeutic specifics in our possession.
