P.falciparum in Placental blood. Note that here mature stages of the parasites are predominantly seen, unlike what is usually found on peripheral blood because of the parasites sequestration in the placenta. There are lots of late trophozoites with pigment well visible in the parasites cytoplasm and also early schizonts. Note also the presence of malaria pigment phagocytosed in the 3 monocytes (middle of the picture)
P.falciparum rings and gametocytes on thick blood film
P.falciparum: 1 ring and 1 gametocyte on thin blood film.
