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.
