Malarial Retinopathy: the Summary on Contemporaneous Hypothesis

By Viroj Wiwanitkit

Abstract

Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes. Malaria retinopathy is misdiagnosed in the clinical setting, leading to a failure to treat other life-threatening illnesses. Indeed, the problem can be severe and should be the focus in tropical ophthalmology. In this brief article, the author summarises and comments on the present hypothesis for malarial retinopathy. This hypothesis could be justified by further basic and clinical studies
