Caption: Julius Wagner-Jauregg. Portrait of Julius Wagner- Jauregg ((1857-1940), Austrian psychiatrist and neurologist. Wagner-Jauregg devised a new treatment for General Paralysis of the Insane (GPI) which was a common complication of advanced syphilis. From 1887 he had been aware that fevers caused remission for GPI sufferers. In 1917 he innoculated patients with tertian malaria, a disease which causes fevers, and many of them had extensive remissions. Malaria treatments for GPI were popular for some time and Wagner-Jauregg was awarded the Nobel Prize for physiology in 1927. In 1894 he had also suggested the use of iodine tablets to cure cretinism or hypothyroidism.
