Key passage(s)




“I therefore organised a series of comparative observations by treating, over a specific period, and alternately according to the order of their admission, some patients with progressive paralysis with malaria only, and the others, in addition and later, with Salvarsan, in the previously indicated manner. In the first series there were 32 cases, in the second 33 (p. 43).”
