30 June 2017 (Friday) - Parasitology NEQAS
I got to see the results of the most recent parasitology NEQAS today:
I immediately thought of babesiosis as I saw one iffy looking parasite-thingy...
But I plumped for “No parasites seen”
There were no parasites
Definitely malaria but what was it..
Possibly P vivax.... ??? mixed infestation with P falciparum as some cells had what looked like double P falciparum parasites.
Parasitaemia about 5%
Was actually P knowlesi
Oh well – I spotted parasites. And that’s what counts.
