Monitoring of haematological parameters in malarial condition in adult patients
Dr. Anil Kumar Mahto
The morbidity and occasionally mortality related with malaria is high and these haematological factors show an significant part in it. Some current studies have shown that P. vivax can also source of severe disease and the haematological constraints are usually exaggerated in such cases. The present study was commenced to recognise the haematological modifications in vivax malaria patients. The study has planned in IGIMS Patna, The 50 patients detected with malaria were enrolled in to the study. The age group of the patients are from 22-65 years. The patients visited to Out Patient Department (OPD) and in-patient department (IPD) of IGIMS Patna were considered in the study. All the patients are informed consents. The entire patient’s clinical history was collected. The malaria is the major problem in India. The P. Falciparum is the major causative organism responsible for the malaria. Along with it the P. Vivax is also found to cause the malaria. Haematological abnormalities are encountered in vivax malaria. Thrombocytopenia is the most common. A differential diagnosis of malaria should be considered in patients presenting with fever and thrombocytopenia.
