The parasite is spread to humans through the bites of infected mosquitoes. People who have malaria usually feel very sick with a high fever and shaking chills.
The malaria paroxysm comprises three successive stages. The first is a 15-to-60 minute cold stage characterized by shivering and a feeling of cold. Next comes the 2-to-6 hour hot stage, in which there is fever, sometimes reaching 41°C, flushed, dry skin, and often headache, nausea, and vomiting.
Asymptomatic malaria occurs when parasites are present in an individual's blood, but do not cause fever or other symptoms. These "afebrile" infections can be detected either by classical diagnostic tests (if there are enough parasites in blood) or by molecular amplification techniques (if there are very few).
