AbstractWe present a historic revision of malaria. This condition is a real problem in public health, especially in undeveloped countries in tropical areas. In these countries between 300 and 500 million cases of malaria and from 2 to 3 million deaths are registered per year. We go over the ethiology of this condition as studied through the years concluding at the moment in which Laveran discovers the parasite producing malaria in 1880. Up to the XX century malaria was and important endemic entity in Spain. A persistent fight against malaria resulted in its eradication in 1964. Along with our study concerning malaria, we also present a historic revision of the appearance and development of quina, the fundamental pillar in the treatment of this pathologic entity.
