Whenever a person has contracted malaria, the most typical clinical symptoms include high fever, chills, and heavy perspiration. Of all types of malaria cases, it is tropical malaria that causes the most severe physical harm to the patient. Sometimes in extreme cases, there may even be splenomegaly, jaundice, vascular collapse and shock, liver and kidney failure, and ultimately death.
