During the long Sahelian dry season, mosquito vectors of malaria are expected to perish when no larval sites are available; yet, days after the first rains, mosquitoes reappear in large numbers. How these vectors persist over the 3-6-month long dry season has not been resolved, despite extensive research for over a century. Hypotheses for vector persistence(More)
Genetic heterogeneity in the African malaria mosquito, Anopheles gambiae, led to the recognition of chromosomal forms over 30 years ago by Prof Coluzzi and colleagues, who proposed that divergence between these populations was extensive and related to adaptation to mesic vs arid habitats as well as to particular types of larval habitats. Redefined as(More)

Infratentorial subdural empyemas are rare. It is an important neurological infection requiring immediate neurosurgical treatment. The nonsurgical treatment of subdural empyema has been reported sporadically. In this paper the authors report the nonsurgical treatment of a case of infratentorial subdural empyema. The patient with left recurrent otitis was(More)
