In 1946, at Letterman General Hospital, a patient with amebiasis in whom a liver abscess had penetrated the diaphragm, and in whom a bronchopleural fistula was present, had remained critically ill and continued to produce copious brown sputum in spite of having received two courses of 10 gr. of emetine in less than a month. Lt. Col. Vince Moseley and I decided to treat him with atabrine because we reasoned that, since Galli-Valerio1 had shown that atabrine was effective in treatment of Giardia lamblia infections, and since the Giardia was known to inhabit the biliary system, atabrine must be present
