Between 1989 and 1991, a group of 1345 infants reporting at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria, for whom a clinical diagnosis of malaria was made by the attending general physician, were prospectively studied. Although other clinical signs (e.g. splenomegaly) were taken into account in the diagnosis of malaria, all pyrexia of undetermined origin was initially treated as malaria.
