    Abstract : The author has found that the disease called in Zululand Isigwebedhla is merely an advanced stage of tropical malaria. He believes it has been exploited and its symptoms exaggerated by native doctors, more especially the Tongas, to serve their own ends. The nature of the deception is described and the paper is rather out of the common and of considerable interest having notes on native methods of diagnosis and treatment. A. B.
