    C-Reactive protein has not been studied in malaria so far but with the reappearance of malaria in the southern part of Iran there is now an opportunity to study the behaviour of C-reactive protein in malaria. One hundred and sixty-two patients suffering from malaria have been so tested. Of those patients, 85·2% showed a positive result and among them more than 50% had a strongly positive reaction. It may be concluded that malaria is one of the outstanding diseases in which the C-reactive protein test is positive. Those patients who were examined for C-reactive protein in the first two days of the disease showed a negative result.
