    Cerebral malaria ia a medical emergency presents as an otherwise unexplained coma in a patient with Plasmodium falciparum parasitemia.There are three variables over here which adds on to the high mortality - pediatric age group,, mosquitoes, malnutrition and HIV /AIDS prevalence.
    The mortality could be as high as 8 times if a HIV patient suffers with malaria. I understand it is not scourge for Africa only but could be any where ,where the aforementioned variables are present in the community.

    Hello This is a good article which covers most of CM pathology and treatment but think it should have been more specific by addressing one or two issues of CB. Because I am lost with the objectives or the aim of this article..Please clarify. Lastly your article did not address the issue of anaemia in the CB and especially in children

    It should be more concise and should have some tables/figures to explain better.
