The territory of Krajina Canton used to be one of the most malaria-affected areas and there was a huge antimalaria campaign in 1947. Owing to a journal made by an anonymous writer of chronicles, the author reveals the spread of malaria in the area of Krajina Canton in 1946 and adds details on fighting the disease: residual DDT spraying, control of gamete-carrier and atrebrin treatment. The journal informs us on the spread of mosquitoes, gamete-carriers and types of malaria plasmodia in the controlled group of people, as well as on the epidemiological situation of malaria in the area of Krajina Canton in 1948. The paper is of historical and medical importance.
Key words: malaria, DDT, Krajina Canton
