Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Of 138 patients with malaria, 90 were found to be having Plasmodium falciparum in their peripheral blood smears. Megaloblastosis alone or in combination with the other patterns of erythropoiesis was observed in 82.1 percent cases of chronic P. falciparum malaria as compared to 36.3 and 26.5 per cent cases of acute P. falciparum and P. vivax malaria respectively. Iron deficiency was observed in 15.5 percent cases of chronic P. falciparum, 18.2 per cent cases of acute P. falciparum and 13.3 per cent patients of P. vivax infection. Of patients with chronic falciparum malaria, 33.3 percent revealed features of both megaloblastosis and defective iron utilization and transient hypoplasia of marrow was observed in 8.9 per cent of these cases.
