A private aged 30 had been in Africa eleven months at the time of his first hospitalization, which occurred on Sept. 4, 1943 because of malarial fever, estivoautumnal type; acute bronchitis, and chronic acne of a moderately severe nature over the shoulders and thoracic portion of his back. He was discharged to duty as cured of his malaria and bronchitis but without improvement of the acne on Sept. 13, 1943.

He was readmitted to the same hospital in Africa on three occasions after this because of recurrent malaria. These admissions were between Sept. 28, 1943 and Dec. 3, 1943.

During hospitalization following the third admission he continued to have a low grade fever of 99 to 100 F. even though his blood smears were repeatedly negative for plasmodia. He was discharged from the hospital on Jan. 31, 1944, his temperature still varying between 99 and 100 F.
