    ??BLACKWATER FEVER

    pathologyalso called malarial hemoglobinuria
    , also called malarial hemoglobinuria *blackwater feverone of the less common yet most dangerous complications of malaria. It occurs almost exclusively with infection from the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Blackwater fever has a high mortality. Its symptoms include a rapid pulse, high fever and chills, extreme prostration, a rapidly developing anemia, and the passage of urine that is black or dark red in colour (hence the disease’s name). The distinctive colour of the urine is due to the presence of large amounts of hemoglobin, released during the extensive destruction of the patient’s red blood cells by malarial parasites. Patients frequently develop anemia because of the low numbers of red blood cells. The presence of blood pigments in the blood serum usually produces jaundice early in the course of the disease

    Nimeiweka kama news alert kwa vile huu ugonjwa ulikuwapo zamani na sasa umejirudia tena na hauna dawa. Njia ya kupona ni kuwahi mapema ukihisi dalili za malaria au homa. Kwa wiki 4 nimesikia watu 3 dar es salaam wamekufa na huu ugonjwa akiwepo banker 1 crdb na jamaa aliekufa jana maeneo ya mbezi. Vyombo vya habari vitoe elimu kuhusu huu ugonjwa haraka iwezekanavyo.
