After the suggestion of Verneuil and Merklen and also of Brocq, I have selected the term paludides to include a group of eruptions associated with malarial infection, and when so associated to express their apparent origin. It is, of course, generally understood that malaria is often the cause of various pathologic changes in the skin, yet definite knowledge on this subject is meager; many of the diagnoses and therefore much of the literature is founded upon the mere periodicity of the eruption, its cure by quinine. . . .
