  What is Malaria

   Malaria is acute parasitic disease, which is caused by single-cell parasitic micro-organisms. The usual symptoms of the Malaria disease are fever, sweating and high body temperature. The disease is transmitted in subtropical and tropical regions by biting of female mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. The disease is usually dangerous in the Africa and South America continents and usually the travelers are having big problems with Malaria. Malaria can be carried by people traveling in areas with high incidence of the disease. Furthermore, except contaminated with blood-transmitting and laboratory accidents, the transmission from person to person is possible only during the pregnancy from mother to child, if the placenta is damaged.

   The Malaria can be caused by certain parasites of the genus Plasmodium. For the people dangerous are only Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale and Plasmodium malariae. They significantly differ in the terms of their geographical distribution and course of disease. Plasmodium falciparum is of utmost clinical importance and the most dangerous parasite from the whole genus. In dependence of the parasite causing the disease, there are four different forms of Malaria, which have different treatment and different symptoms:
      • Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium оvale determine the Three-day Malaria
      • Plamodium falciparum determine the Tropical Malaria
      • Plasmodium malariae determine the Four-day Malaria
   Definitely these parasites have pretty complicated process of growing and reproduction, which stages usually proceeds in certain types of mosquitoes.

Malaria Endemic Map    The source of infection is the sick man, from who the mosquito sucks blood, thus taking the mature forms of the parasite. The parasites can growth into the mosquito or to be transferred to the bited person. After proceeding of some stages from the biological cycle in the salivary glands of mosquitoes locate sexless forms. When the mosquito bites a person, the parasites gone into the blood, which fall them in the live, where are proceeding the next stages of parasites growth. The liver cells are destroyed by them, and the parasites are going into the red blood cells. The growth of the parasites in the erythrocytes is 48 hours for Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium оvale and Plamodium falciparum and 72 hours for Plasmodium malariae. After this incubation period occurs destruction of the infected blood cells and infection of new ones. This incubation period determines the length of the cycle of clinical manifestation. Another feature is that in the first two types of parasites, some of the parasitic forms remain in the liver, enforcing complicated with this therapeutic treatment.

Malaria    In all the cases the disease is dangerous and the treatment should be carefully done by doctor. The Malaria can cause very dangerous consequences and mostly to the children. The Cerebral malaria, from which the children are most vulnerable, may cause neurological damage and impairment of cognition. But this is even not the most dangerous exhibition of the disease, as the acute malaria mortality may exceed 20%, even with intensive treatment and health care. Also the disease may recur months or years after the initial development because of the presence of latent parasites in the liver. This can cause serious problems in the future and many specialists and scientists call this chronic malaria, which is the main reason, that it can be concluded that the disease is completely cured when all the parasites disappear from the blood.



   Definitely the cure of Malaria is serious and it should be done in the hospital under the permanent inspection of the Medical team.

The disease is transmitted by mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. The cyclical temperature attacks occur when a threshold of parasitemia. Upon the receipt of parasites in the blood releases pigment and metabolic products with the pyrogenically and toxic effects that can interfere with thermoregulatory centers.

   The disease begins with malaise, headache, anorexia and fever. The disease occurs in an enlarged liver and spleen, which are painful and hurt.
