17 November 2017 (Friday) - Malaria Revisited

The other day we had the blood parasite NEQAS come in. There were malarial parasites in one film… They *weren’t* P. falciparum… I think.
I’m no expert on malaria. Well… compared to most of humanity I suppose I am, but when it comes to speciation I do struggle; particularly differentiating between P.vivax and P.ovale.

A colleague pointed me at this website. It’s not perfect, but it is a useful little guide.
