This is an outline, in Spanish, of a course in malariology given in Maracay under the direction of Dr. Arnoldo Gabaldon, chief of the Division of Malariology, Venezuela, from Oct. 2 to Dec. 1, 1944 to twenty-six students from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela and one from the United States. The first forty-nine pages consist simply of a schedule by hours of the lectures and class exercises. There follow in the first volume introductory, hematologic and entomologic sections, presented largely in outline, doubtless conforming to lectures attended by the students. The second volume covers in the same way various aspects of epidemiology, treatment and prophylaxis. The two volumes no doubt were useful to the students concerned and would be of interest to any agency planning a similar course. But they do not constitute a textbook, manual or reference book in the usual sense.
