Lethal malaria: Marchiafava and Bignami were right.
- One hundred and twenty years ago, the Italian malariologists Marchiafava and Bignami proposed that the fundamental pathological process underlying lethal falciparum malaria was microvascular obstruction.

Recent evidence strongly suggests that Marchiafava and Bignami were right.
