LABORATORY DIAGNOSIS

The first step toward diagnosis (and treatment) of malaria is to consider malaria in the differential diagnosis!

Diagnostic findings
Microscopic identification is the method most frequently used to demonstrate an active infection.
Morphological comparison and images of Plasmodium species.
Molecular diagnosis techniques can complement microscopy, especially in species identification.
Antibody Detection can detect past (not necessarily active) infections.
Immunologic/Biochemical detection of malaria parasite products are available and under evaluation.
