Background: Malaria still causes severe infection in human being and responsible for high mortality in the world. P. falciparum is a species causing serious fatal infections.The aim of this study was to find the differences and role of haemoglobin and platelet count in P. falciparum and P. vivax. Materials and Methods: This study was carried out at Department of Microbiology Central Clinical Laboratory, MGM Medical College and Hospital, Navi Mumbai. Total 200 positive samples (100 P. falciparum and P. vivax) were included in this study. Haemoglobin and platelet counts were estimated by standard method. Results: Our study showed increased level in P. falciparum than P. vivax. In our study we found that P. falciparum altered more in haemoglobin and platelet counts than P. vivax. Conclusion: Our study highlights the value of these two tests (haemoglobin and platelet count) which can be used as biomarkers to confirmation of malaria.
