Coinfection of Malaria and Filaria: A Rare Entity
South Asian Journal of Parasitology,
Microfilaria & Malaria are parasites that infect humans through common mosquito vectors which can be detected by examination of peripheral blood smear. Many times the finding of microfilaria is incidental but its early diagnosis helps in preventing the prognosis of the disease. Here we have reported few interesting cases of coinfection of Malaria and Filariasis in our center. This study provides information regarding management of patients with concomitant malaria and filariasis
