Malaria H2012 Protozoan Disease 108 countries 3 billion people 1 million deaths each year In the late twentieth : Eliminated

United States, Canada, Europe, Russia Prevalence rose in many parts of the tropics Resurgence Increases in the drug resistance of the parasite

Insecticide resistance of its vectors Human travel and migration Etiology Five species of the genus Plasmodium cause nearly all malarial infections in humans. Falciparum Vivax

Ovale Malariae Knowlesi (in Southeast Asiathe monkey malaria parasite ) Almost all Deaths Falciparum

Female Anopheline Mosquito Sporozoites Liver Asexual Reproduction Single Sporozoite eventually 10,000 to >30,000 Daughter Merozoites Liver cell eventually bursts 100 million parasites in the blood of an adult, the symptomatic stage of the infection begins

Vivax and Ovale Intrahepatic forms Dormant(Hypnozoites) for a period ranging from 3 weeks to a year or longer before reproduction begins Relapses

Duration of Erythrocytic Cycle (hours) Falciparum 48 h Vivax 48 h Ovale 50 h Malariae 72 h

Red Cell Preference Falciparum Younger cells (but can invade cells of all ages) Vivax Reticulocytes and cells up to 2 weeks old Ovale Reticulocytes Malariae Older cells

Morphology Falciparum Usually only ring forms; Banana-shaped gametocytes Vivax Irregularly shaped large rings and trophozoites; enlarged erythrocytes; Schffner's dots

Ovale Infected erythrocytes, enlarged and oval with tufted ends; Schffner's dots Malariae Band or rectangular forms of trophozoites common Relapses Vivax , Ovale :Yes

Falciparum , Malariae : No Parasitemias of >2% are suggestive of Falciparum infection Vivax Duffy blood-group antigen Fya or Fyb Most West Africans and people with

origins in that region carry the Duffynegative FyFy phenotype and are therefore resistant to P. vivax Disease Direct effects of RBC invasion and destruction by the asexual parasite and the host's reaction Epidemiology

Falciparum predominates in Africa, New Guinea, and Hispaniola (i.e., the Dominican Republic and Haiti) Vivax is more common in Central America Malariae is found in most endemic areas Ovale is relatively unusual outside of Africa Endemicity

Parasitemia rates or palpable-Spleen rates in children 29 years Hypoendemic (<10%) Mesoendemic (1150%) Hyperendemic (5175%) Holoendemic (>75%) Holo- and Hyperendemic areas (e.g., certain regions of tropical Africa or coastal

New Guinea) where there is intense Falciparum transmission, people may sustain more than one infectious mosquito bite per day and are infected repeatedly throughout their lives Morbidity and Mortality during early Childhood Adulthood, most infections are Asymptomatic Stable Transmission

Constant Frequent Year-round infection Unstable Transmission Transmission is low, Erratic, or Focal, full protective immunity is not acquired, and symptomatic disease may occur at All Ages

Usually exists in Hypoendemic An Epidemic Changes in Environmental, Economic, or Social conditions, such as heavy rains or migrations (usually of Refugees or Workers) from a nonmalarious region to an area of high transmission; a breakdown in malaria control and prevention service

All Age Groups Anophelines >400 can transmit malaria, and the 40 considerably in their efficiency as malaria vectors Life cycle within the mosquitofrom gametocyte ingestion to subsequent inoculation (sporogony)lasts 830 days

mosquito must survive for >7 Sporogony Is not completed at cooler temperatures <16C for P. vivax and < 21C for Falciparum; transmission does not occur below

The most effective mosquito vectors such as Anopheles gambiae in Africa, which are long-lived, occur in high densities in tropical climates, breed readily, and bite humans in preference to other animals

Entomologic Inoculation Rate (EIR) the number of sporozoite-positive mosquito bites per person per year is the most common measure of malaria transmission and varies from <1 in some parts of Latin America and Southeast Asia to >300 in parts of tropical Africa.

Erythrocyte Changes Consumes and degrades intracellular proteins principally hemoglobin Alters the RBC membrane by changing its transport properties, exposing cryptic surface antigens, and inserting new parasite-derived proteins. The RBC becomes more irregular in shape, more antigenic, and less

deformable. Severe malaria is also associated with reduced deformability of the uninfected erythrocytes, which compromises their passage through the partially obstructed capillaries and venules and shortens RBC survival.

In the other three ("benign") human malarias, sequestration does not occur, and all stages of the parasite's development are evident on peripheral-blood smears. Whereas Vivax, Ovale, and Malariae show a marked predilection for either young RBCs (Vivax, Ovale) or old cells (Malariae) and produce a level of parasitemia that is seldom >2%,

Falciparum can invade erythrocytes of all ages and may be associated with very high levels of parasitemia. Host Response Initially, nonspecific defense mechanisms Splenic immunologic and filtrative clearance Removal of both parasitized and

uninfected erythrocytes Strain-specific immune response then controls the infection Exposure to sufficient strains confers protection from high-level parasitemia and disease but not from infection Infection without illness ,asymptomatic parasitemia is common among adults and older children living in

regions with stable and intense transmission (holo- or hyperendemic areas). Immunity is mainly specific for both the species and the strain of infecting malarial parasite. Both humoral immunity and cellular immunity are necessary for protection Passively transferred IgG from immune adults has been shown to reduce levels of

parasitemia in children; although parasitemia in very young infants can occur, passive transfer of maternal antibody contributes to the relative (but not complete) protection of infants from severe malaria in the first months of life Immunity to disease declines when a person lives outside an endemic

area for several months or longer. Parasites may persist in the blood for months (or, in the case of P. malariae, for many years) Temperatures of 40C damage mature parasites Tertian, every 2 days; Quartan, every 3 days) are seldom seen today

Geographic Distributions Sickle Cell disease Hemoglobins C and E Hereditary Ovalocytosis Thalassemias G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenas edeficiency ) closely resemble that of falciparum malaria before the introduction of control measures. This similarity

suggests that these genetic disorders confer protection against death from falciparum Clinical Features First symptoms of malaria are nonspecific Lack of a sense of well-being Headache Fatigue Abdominal discomfort

Muscle aches Fever similar to the symptoms of a minor viral illness followed by Headache Chest pain Abdominal pain Arthralgia

Myalgia Diarrhea Common Nausea Vomiting Orthostatic hypotension Classic malarial paroxysms

Fever spikes Chills and rigors occur at regular intervals, are relatively unusual and suggest infection with P. Vivax or P. Ovale Fever Irregular at first (that of falciparum malaria may never become regular); the

temperature of nonimmune individuals and children often rises above 40C in conjunction with Tachycardia and sometimes Delirium. Childhood Febrile Convulsions may occur with any of the malarias, generalized seizures are

specifically associated with falciparum malaria Physical Findings Fever Malaise Mild Anemia Palpable Spleen (in some cases)

Anemia Common among young children living in areas with stable transmission Slight enlargement of the liver Common, particularly among

Young Children Mild jaundice Common among adults; it may develop in patients with otherwise uncomplicated malaria and usually resolves over 13 weeks

Malaria is not associated with a rash Petechial hemorrhages in the skin or mucous develop only rarely in severe falciparum malaria Severe Falciparum Malaria Appropriately and promptly treated,

uncomplicated falciparum malaria (i.e., the patient can swallow medicines and food) Mortality rate of 0.1% Severe Falciparum Malaria Cerebral malaria/convulsion Acidemia/acidosis Severe normochromic, normocytic anemia

Renal failure Pulmonary edema/adult respiratory distress syndrome Hypoglycemia Hypotension/shock Bleeding/disseminated intravascular coagulation Hemoglobinuria Hypoglycemia

Important and common complication of severe malaria, is associated with a poor prognosis and is particularly problematic in Children and Pregnant women. Hepatic Gluconeogenesis Increase in the consumption of glucose by both host and, to a much lesser extent, the malaria parasites Quinine ,Quinidine

Jaundice Mild hemolytic jaundice is common in malaria Severe jaundice is associated with P. falciparum; is more common among adults and results from: Hemolysis Hepatocyte injury Cholestasis

Other HIV/AIDS predisposes to more severe malaria in nonimmune individuals Worsened by intestinal helminths, Hookworm in particular Septicemia may complicate severe malaria, particularly in children(specifically Salmonella bacteremia )

Aspiration Pneumonia Anemia Convulsions Hypoglycemia Jaundice

Renal failure Pulmonary edema Pregnancy Stable transmission area: Mothers Asymptomatic Falciparum malaria in primi- and secundigravid women is associated with Low Birth Weight

Increased infant and childhood mortality Maternal HIV infection predisposes newborns to congenital malarial Pregnancy Unstable Transmission Mother: High-level parasitemia Anemia

Hypoglycemia Acute pulmonary edema Fetal distress, premature labor, and stillbirth or low birth weight are common Pregnancy Congenital malaria occurs in <5% of newborns P. Vivax malaria in pregnancy is also

associated with a reduction in birth weight but, in contrast to the situation in falciparum malaria, this effect is more pronounced in Multigravid Transfusion Blood Transfusion Needle-Stick Injury IVDU

Organ Transplantation Incubation period in these settings is often short because there is no preerythrocytic stage Clinical features and management are the same as for naturally acquired infections. Primaquine is unnecessary for transfusiontransmitted P. vivax and P. ovale infections. Tropical Splenomegaly (Hyperreactive Malarial Splenomegaly)

Chronic or repeated in some cases malarial parasites cannot be found in peripheral-blood smears Massive Splenomegaly, Hepatomegaly Hypergammaglobulinemia; normochromic, normocytic anemia Antimalarial chemoprophylaxis; results usually good Quartan Malarial Nephropathy

Chronic or repeated infections with P. Malariae (and possibly with other malarial species soluble immune-complex Nephrotic Syndrome Burkitt's Lymphoma Strongly associated with Epstein-Barr virus

The prevalence of this childhood tumor is high in malarious areas of Africa. Diagnosis Asexual Giemsa Field's Wright's Leishman's stain

Both thin and thick (preferred) RDTs Rapid, simple, sensitive, and specific antibody-based diagnostic stick or card tests that detect P. falciparumspecific, in finger-prick blood samples are now being used widely in control programs RDTs are replacing microscopy in many areas

because of their simplicity and speed, but they are relatively expensive and do not quantify parasitemia. PCR Antibody and PCR tests have NO role in the diagnosis of malaria except that PCR is increasingly used for genotyping and

speciation in mixed infections Gametocytemia may persist for days or weeks after clearance of asexual parasites Phagocytosed malarial Pigment is sometimes seen inside peripheral-blood

Monocytes or Polymorphonuclear leukocytes and may provide a clue to recent infection if malaria parasites are not detectable Laboratory Findings Normochromic, Normocytic Anemia is usual WBC count is generally normal, although it may be raised in very severe infections

Monocytosis, Lymphopenia, and Eosinopenia, with reactive Lymphocytosis and Eosinophilia in the weeks after the acute infection ESR,CRP High Severe infections may be accompanied by prolonged PT and partial thromboplastin times and by more severe Thrombocytopenia Treatment

Repeat blood smears at least every 1224 h for 2 days Alternatively, a rapid antigen detection card or stick test Any doubt about the resistance, it should be considered resistant Antimalarial drug susceptibility testing can be performed but is

rarely available, has poor predictive value in an individual case, and yields results too slowly to influence the choice of treatment Chloroquine Choice for the non-falciparum malarias Vivax Ovale

Malariae Knowlesi except in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, where high levels of resistance in P. vivax are prevalent. Chloroquine-Sensitive Vivax Malariae

Ovale, Knowlesi Falciparuma Chloroquine (10 mg of base/kg stat followed by 5 mg/kg at 12, 24, and 36 h or by 10 mg/kg at 24 h and 5 mg/kg at 48 h) or

Amodiaquine (1012 mg of base/kg qd for 3 days) Radical Treatment Vivax or Ovale Primaquine (0.5 mg of base/kg qd) should be given for 14 days to prevent relapse.

In mild G6PD deficiency, 0.75 mg of base/kg should be given once weekly for 68 weeks. Not be given in severe G6PD deficiency Falciparum Artesunatec (3 days) +

Sulfadoxine/Pyrimethamine as a single dose or Artesunatec (3 days) + Amodiaquine (3 days)

Multidrug-resistant Falciparum Artemether-Lumefantrinec (bid for 3 days with food) or Artesunatec (3 days) + Mefloquine (3 days )

Second-line treatment/treatment of imported Artesunatec (7 days) or Quinine (tid for 7 days) plus 1 of the following 3: 1. Tetracycline (qid for 7 days)

2. 3. Doxycycline (qd for 7 days) Clindamycin (bid for 7 days) or

Atovaquone-Proguanil (qd for 3 days with food) Severe Falciparum Artesunatec (IV followed by at 12 and 24 h and then daily if necessary) or, if unavailable, one of the following: Artemetherc (IM followed by qd) or

Quinine dihydrochloride (infused over 4 h, followed infused over 28 h q8h) or Quinidine (infused over 12 h, followed by houriwith electrocardiographic monitoring) Very few areas now have chloroquine-sensitive P. falciparum

Tetracycline and Doxycycline should not be given to pregnant women or to children <8 years of age Oral treatment should be substituted as soon as the patient recovers sufficiently to take fluids by mouth WHO now recommends Artemisinin-based combinations as first-line treatment for uncomplicated

Falciparum Quinine, Quinidine Common: Hypoglycemia Chloroquine Acute: Hypotensive shock (parenteral), cardiac arrhythmias, neuropsychiatric

reactions Chronic: Retinopathy (cumulative dose, >100 g), skeletal and cardiac myopathy Primaquine Massive hemolysis in subjects with severe G6PD deficiency Severe Malaria

Uncomplicated Malaria .. If there is any doubt as to the identity of the infecting malarial species, treatment for falciparum malaria should be given Nonimmune patients receiving treatment ,daily

parasite counts performed until the thick films are negative. If the level of parasitemia does not fall below 25% of the admission value in 48 h or if parasitemia has not cleared by 7 days (and adherence is assured), drug resistance is likely and the regimen should be changed Radical Treatment Primaquine (0.5 mg of base/kg, adult dose)

should be given daily for 14 days to patients with P. vivax or P. ovale infections after laboratory tests for G6PD deficiency have proved negative. If the patient has a mild variant of G6PD deficiency, primaquine can be given in a dose of 0.75 mg of base/kg (45 mg maximum) once weekly for 6 weeks. Radical Treatment

Pregnant women with vivax or ovale malaria should not be given Primaquine but should receive suppressive prophylaxis with Chloroquine (5 mg of base/kg per week) until delivery, after which radical treatment can be given. Complications

Acute Renal Failure Acute Pulmonary Edema (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) Hypoglycemia Spontaneous Bleeding Convulsions Aspiration pneumonia Bacterial Sepsis

Prevention no safe, effective, long-lasting vaccine is likely to be available for general use in the near future Personal Protection Against Avoidance of exposure to mosquitoes at their peak

feeding times (usually dusk to dawn) Insect repellents containing 1035% DEET (or, if DEET is unacceptable, 7% Picaridin), Suitable Clothing Insecticide-impregnated bed nets or other materials. Widespread use of bed nets treated with residual Pyrethroids reduces the incidence of malaria in areas where vectors bite indoors at night

Chemoprophylaxis Chemoprophylaxis is never entirely reliable Chloroquine phosphate Atovaquone-Proguanil (Malarone) Doxycycline Mefloquine
