The levels of RBC (P=0.49) increased significantly in children with falciparum and vivax malaria compared to controls. Blood culture at two times. To investigate malaria blood smears taken after microscopic study of Plasmodium falciparum ring was observed. Conclusion Malaria is a multisystem disorder which can lead to many diseases.
