Study of Malaria Parasite with Special Reference to Liver Function Test of the Patient Attending at TMU Hospital Moradabad (U.P)
Background: Malaria is an important infectious vector borne disease caused by a Plasmodium species. Liver involvement in severe Plasmodium falciparum infection is commonly a significant cause of morbidity and mortality among humans. Objective: In this study, we show the correlation of malaria positive cases with liver derangement. Methods: The present study had been conducted in Teerthankar Mahaveer Medical college Hospital and Research Center, Moradabad, U.P. from February 2014 to January 2015 on both IPD & OPD patients .Results: The present study included 200 clinically suspected cases of Malaria with derange Liver function. 67.5% patients show increased level of Total and indirect bilirubin followed by 45% of patient shows increased level of direct bilirubin. 27.5% patient’s shows increased level SGPT followed by 40% of SGOT. Conclusions: Deranged liver functions are commonly seen as a complication of severe malarial infection.
