Abstract: A rural hospital based study was conducted on children with clinical suspicion of malaria to evaluate the efficacy of the rapid diagnostic immunochromatographic test, Parasight F test in diagnosis of falciparum malaria compared to the gold standard, the peripheral blood smear. Blood samples from 105 children who presented with clinical suspicion of malaria(fever with splenomegaly) were investigated at the time of admission by both peripheral blood smear and the Parasight F test to detect the plasmodium falciparum species. Of the 63 confirmed cases of malaria, 23 children showed a positive result in the Parasight F test. The Parasight F test showed 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity for the diagnosis of falciparum malaria.
