Malaria is an infection decrease caused by Anopheles mosquitoes.
Except for infected mosquitos, this infection can be transferred from a mother to a child during a pregnancy period as well as during the transfusion of infected blood or use of contaminated needles and syringes.
A sudden and severe fever is the first sign of malaria.
The whole body is shaking, hands and feet became pale while lips lose their natural color. First, a patient feels like he was kept in the front for a long time. However, after some time a sense of cold disappears and changes with a high body temperature. Literally, in an hour the body temperature rises to forty degrees. Such clinical event occurs when the number of malaria parasites increases to a certain level. A threshold is different for each particular person and depends on individual immunity.
