Type:Term

Definitions
1. finely granular precipitates or irregular cytoplasmic particles that usually occur diffusely in red blood cells infected with the trophozoites of Plasmodium falciparum, occasionally those of P. malariae; rarely observed in P. falciparum blood smears because its trophozoites seldom are seen in peripheral blood.
