The therapeutic efficacy of chloroquine was assessed among children in Nimey, Niger. A total of 241 children (aged 1-15 years) were enrolled in the study. Headache was the most common symptom associated with the fever (91.1%), followed by arthromyalgia (63.3%), nausea (52.7%) and diarrhoea (7.6%). Most of the children (191; 79.2%) had adequate clinical responses to chloroquine treatment, but 23 (9.5%) had early treatment failures.
