Malaria serological examination

Serological Examination

Diagnosis of Malaria is complicated due to certain conditions:

  • In non endemic areas, the doctors are not familiar with the disease and they may not prescribe diagnostic tests for malaria.
  • Laboratories in non-endemic areas are not familiar with the detection of malarial parasites in the blood smears under the microscope and may miss the diagnosis when a test is asked by a doctor.
  • Some carriers do not show any symptoms of Malaria infection as they have partial immunity against malarial parasites but not from the infection.
  • In endemic countries, lack of resources, doctors, equipments causes problems in early detection of malarial parasites.
