Therapeutic Screening To Differentiate Malaria From Other Tropical Syndromes
MetadataShow full item record
In the bush and isolated areas of Africa, falciparum malaria is extremely difficult to diagnose, especially in the pernicious clinical presentation. Although the African states universally accept anti- malarial precautions, malaria is still a serious problem, especially where the intensity of infection is hyperendemic and the rural medical services sparse and hospitals far removed. In Tropical Africa any acute fever of short duration may be malarial. (Gelfand, 1961).
