Käfer has studied the cerebrospinal fluid in seventeen cases of dementia paralytica treated with malaria. He divides the cerebrospinal fluid changes into four periods: the malarial period, in which there is an attenuation of the pressure and of the pleocytosis; the first and second postmalarial periods, in which there is an attenuation of the pleocytosis, and the last period, in which there is a diminution of the pleocytosis, and negative globulin, Wassermann and Lange reactions. The author has given a comprehensive review and bibliography of the subject.
