The cases of Kala Azar here brought under review have been treated at the Foster Hospital of the English Baptist Mission, at Chow-Tsun in the Province of Shantung, North China. With one or two exceptions, they have all come from two areas, in the same district about 100 miles from the hospital. There are sporadic cases within a few miles of it, but in the areas above mentioned the disease is endemic, nearly every village having a certain number of cases, and a majority of the families having a past or present history of the disease. Owing to the great distance from the hospital to the homes of the patients, and the impossibility of ensuring regular attendance at the Out-patient Department of such as come from the immediate vicinity, all the cases have been admitted to the wards and remained there during the course of treatment. Close observation has been possible in every case. All cases without regard to end-result have been included in the report so that a true estimate of the results of treatment can be obtained. The writer has personally supervised and examined every case, and all laboratory methods have been under his direct supervision. He has also personally examined every microscopical slide and has seen the Leishman-Donovan body in every case in which it has been reported as present.
