Lung injury in vivax malaria: pathophysiological evidence for pulmonary vascular sequestration and posttreatment alveolar-capillary inflammation.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The mechanisms underlying lung injury in vivax malaria are not well understood. Inflammatory responses to Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax, to our knowledge, have not previously been compared at an organ level. METHODS: Respiratory symptoms and physiological aspects were measured longitudinally in Indonesian adults with uncomplicated vivax (n=50) and falciparum (n=50) malaria. Normal values were derived from 109 control subjects. Gas transfer was partitioned into its alveolar-c...
