Limited level of accuracy provided by available rapid diagnosis tests for malaria enhances the need for PCR-based reference laboratories
J Clin Microbiol. 2001 Jul;39(7):2736-7.
The rise of imported malaria cases and the high fatality rate in Europe make the search for new and easy diagnostic methods necessary. Rapid diagnosis tests (RDTs) are, in part, developed to cover the lack of diagnosis experience. Unfortunately, our data suggest that the accuracy of RDTs is insufficient and could increase the number of incorrect malaria diagnoses.
