I did my parasitology competence review today... I got nine out of ten right. I missed the P. malariae but the slide in which that parasite was lurking wasn't a good film... in fact it was rather old and the parasites were somewhat squafty (to coin a phrase).
On reviewing that film I saw what I'd missed. I’d not actually missed them; I’d thought they were large mis-shapen and deformed platelets. But this is CPD... I have spotted where I am weak. I need to beef up my awareness of P. malariae
