  • ISSN : 0008-9176



(1) Ninety-one patients suffering from urillary bilharziasis were treated with intravenous anthiomaline. One hundred and nine specimens of urine from 62 of these patients were re-tested after the completion of treatment-46 three months later, 19 six months later and 44 a year later. No schistosome ova (alive or dead) were found in any of these tests. (2) Toxic effects were very infrequent, hut included coughing, vomiting, conjunctival congestion, stiffness of the muscles and joints and herpes zoster. In only three cases were these effects severe. (3) The literature on the use of anthiomaline in the treatment of bilharziasis has been reviewed. (4) Stress has been laid on the value of anthiomaline when, given intravenously in adequate dosage, it has proved the best method in our experience.
