30 June 2017 (Friday) - Parasitology NEQAS

I got to see the results of the most recent parasitology NEQAS today:

1702 PA1

I immediately thought of babesiosis as I saw one iffy looking parasite-thingy...
But I plumped for “No parasites seen

There were no parasites

1702 PA2

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.
