A detailed descriptionption of clinical malaria in Rhodesia appears not to have been made. Accordingly a study was carried out on African patients in Harare Hospital found to have malarial parasites in their blood slides. All these patients were investigated by the University Medical Unit and they were almost all seen by one of us (MG). In all, 280 patients above the age of seven years were examined covering a period from 1967 to 1973 inclusive. We were also able to look into the records of 106 African children under the age of six admitted to Salisbury Central Hospital over a four year period from 1970 to 1973. Unfortunately, in the European cases, the records were not detailed enough for us to make many valid comments. This article is part one of the series.
