Both hyper-reactive malarial splenomegaly (HMS) and HIV infection are highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, but the inter-relationships between the two conditions are not clearly defined. Diagnosis of HMS is particularly difficult in HIV-infected patients, and detection of circulating malaria parasites by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) may represent a useful diagnostic tool.

Abstract

Both hyper-reactive malarial splenomegaly (HMS) and HIV infection are highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, but the inter-relationships between the two conditions are not clearly defined. Diagnosis of HMS is particularly difficult in HIV-infected patients, and detection of circulating malaria parasites by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) may represent a useful diagnostic tool.
