Four species of plasmodia causing human malaria are plasmodium vivax, plasmodium falciparum, plasmodium malariae and plasmodium ovale malaria (from the italian 'mal' aria, meaning bad air) is an acute and sometimes chronic infection of the bloodstream characterized clinically by fever, anemia and splenomegaly and is caused by apicomplexan . Plasmodium vivax is a major cause of illness in areas with low transmission of malaria in latin america, asia, and the horn of africa however, pregnancy-associated malaria remains poorly characterized in such areas. Plasmodium ovale plasmodium vivax it is believed to account for 80%of all malaria infections, widely distributed because it can develop in mosquitoes at lower temperatures and is the cause of the most prevalent forms of malaria benign tertian with.

Four species of plasmodia causing human malaria are plasmodium vivax, plasmodium falciparum, plasmodium malariae and plasmodium ovale malaria (from the italian 'mal' aria, meaning bad air) is an acute and sometimes chronic infection of the bloodstream characterized clinically by fever, anemia and splenomegaly and is caused by apicomplexan parasites of the genus plasmodium.
