BACKGROUND In patients with cerebral malaria (CM), retinal angiography allows the study of infected central nervous system microvasculature in vivo. We aimed to examine retinal perfusion in children with CM by use of fluorescein angiography to investigate the pathophysiology of CM. METHODS We performed fluorescein angiography on children with CM admitted to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Malawi. We related angiograms to funduscopic findings. RESULTS Fluorescein angiography was performed… CONTINUE READING
