Malaria




Definition

An acute and sometimes chronic infectious disease due to the presence of protozoan parasites within red blood cells. These parasites are discharged through salivary ducts when the mosquito "bites" a person.


Causes

The causative organism is transmitted through "bites" of infected female mosquitoes of the genus anopheles. Also may be transmitted by blood transfusion. Incubation period: average 12 days to 30 days.


Symptoms

Various derangements of the digestive and nervous systems; characterized by periodicity, chills, fever, and sweats in the order mentioned, having pathological manifestations of progressive anemia, splenic enlargement, and deposition in various organs of a melanin, resulting from biological activity of the parasite.

Prevention can be directed by the doctor if you expect to be traveling to areas where malaria is endemic.

    Comments

    Malaria (means bad air), was once thought to be contracted by breathing bad air, literally. Case in point, swampy areas with their swamp gases, open latrines, dump sites, were cited as having bad air and causing malaria. We've come a long way since then.
