General Parasitology and Protozoa
All are true about post transfusion malaria except
|A||Caused by P. Malariae|
|B||Radical chemotherpy is required|
|C||Transmitted by needles|
|D||Caused by P. Ovale|
a. In transfusion malaria, the hepatic stage is not seen. Radical chemotherapy is not required for transfusion malaria, as there is no hypnozoite formation in the liver due to pre-erythrocytic stages.
b. It can be caused by any species of plasmodium.
