Clearance kinetics of parasites and pigment-containing leukocytes in severe malaria.

Abstract:

In tropical areas, where unsupervised use of antimalarial drugs is common, patients with an illness consistent clinically with severe malaria but with negative blood smears pose a management dilemma. Malaria pigment is evident in peripheral blood leukocytes in greater than 90% of patients with severe malaria.
