This, the first monograph on the subject in the Russian language, presents an exhaustive discussion as well as an analysis of the author's experience with the method of malarial therapy. The author discusses indications, contraindications, the choice of the parasite, the technic of inoculation, the course of experimental malaria and the methods of terminating it. From ten to twelve paroxysms constitute one course. The literature concerning the results obtained in dementia paralytica is critically reviewed. The author's impressions are based on an experience with 1,000 cases treated by him in the last seven years. Of this number he was able to study and follow up 712 cases for from one to eight years. He feels that both the specific and the nonspecific therapy are indicated in the postsyphilitic diseases and in the refractive early cases of syphilis. Of the nonspecific agents he considers malarial therapy to be the most effective.
