PMID:  6753565     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Reports from participants in the CAP Special Parasitology Survey were reviewed. Under these survey circumstances, plasmodia were reported 92% or more of the time when they were present. Between 29 and 93% of the reports correctly identified the species of plasmodia present. Negative blood films were interpreted correctly 93% or more of the time. Improvement in the correct identification to species is needed.
