Traduction en anglais : Prognostic factors of malaria tropica: results of an evaluation study in the Federal Republic of Germany 1963-1988.
A retrospective study was performed on all cases of malaria recorded in the Federal Republic of Germany between 1963 and 1988.
The questionnaires evaluated by the Federal Bureau of Public Health showed a total of 8049 cases, of which 3991 concerned malaria tropica, and 173 deaths.
During this 26-year period, 90 ; of the patients suffering from malaria tropica had contracted the disease in Africa.
Deaths from malaria had shown a constant figure of almost 10 ; between 1963 and 1978, but after that there was a distinct drop.
Differentiated analysis revealed that between 1979 and 1988 the death rate for malaria tropica acquired in Africa had been 3.3%. This was clearly dependent on chemoprophylaxis behaviour, on the time of initiation of treatment and on the age of the patients; if tablets were taken regularly, the death rate was 2.3% rising to 3.1% on irregular intake and to 5.4% without chemoprophylaxis.
