UNLABELLED Malaria is one of the most important parasitic diseases in humans affecting 103 countries worldwide. AIMS The present study aims to determine the diagnostic utility of cell counter data--hemoglobin, total leukocyte count, platelet count and depolarized laser light (DLL)-based purple-coded events (PCEs) in detection of acute malaria. This is a retrospective study of 523 patient data that came for complete blood count for the first time. RESULTS One hundred thirty-five of the 523… CONTINUE READING
