|Contribution||Suggested that malaria is caused by black pigment seen in the tissues of victims, perhaps of protozoal origin.|
|Notes||See earlier observation of Meckel. Bruce-Chwatt and de Zulueta (Oxford Univ. Press, 1980) cite Zasuhin 1951, to effect that Afanasiev suspected that pigment came from a parasitic protozoon. Garrison refers in another context to M. Afanassyeff.|
