A systematic review of transfusion-transmitted malaria in non-endemic areas

Abstract: BackgroundTransfusion-transmitted malaria (TTM) is an accidental Plasmodium infection caused by whole blood or a blood component transfusion from a malaria infected donor to a recipient. Infected blood transfusions directly release malaria parasites in the recipient’s bloodstream triggering the development of high risk complications, and potentially leading to a fatal outcome especially in individuals with no previous exposure to malaria or in immuno-compromised patients. A systematic review was conducted on T… Show more

“…In non‐endemic countries, TT malaria is due to infected travelers and immigrants coming from endemic areas. This kind of malaria transmission may cause severe clinical symptoms especially because recipients are often unaware or immunosuppressed . Delayed diagnosis is also a cause of significant morbidity and mortality .…”
