Malaria is an infectious disease, the carriers of which are insects. Full recovery is possible with the timely start of treatment and full control of the doctor. Otherwise, complications may develop. The most dangerous consequence is the malarial coma, which ends with death. Liver and lung lesions, heart failure and brain damage, are also possible.
Etiotropic treatment of patients with manifest forms of malaria begins with hematoschotropic drugs that provide suppression of erythrocytic schizogony and the cessation of acute manifestations of the disease (stop therapy). Later on, according to indications, histosysotropic agents are used to preventing exoerythrocytic relapses of P. vivax- and R. ovale-malaria or gametocidal drugs in P. falciparum-malaria (radical therapy).
