Abstract : The side-effects such as febrile reactions after the initial dose of diethylcarbamazine are the most difficult problems in the mass treatment of malayan filariasis. Proper understanding on the nature and cause of these adverse reactions is strongly suggested and the establishment of the adequate control measure against these reactions is also drastically necessitated in order to lead successfully the large-scale mass treatment.
