From: Accuracy of Pf HRP2 versus Pf-pLDH antigen detection by malaria rapid diagnostic tests in hospitalized children in a seasonal hyperendemic malaria transmission area in Burkina Faso

Figure 3

Positive polymerase chain reaction and Pf -pLDH results and report of previous anti-malarial treatment for false-positive Pf HRP2 samples. Only those samples with false positive PfHRP2 for which PCR was performed are displayed (n = 114). AM Tx = previous anti-malarial treatment, PfpLDH = positive Pf-pLDH test line, PCR = positive PCR result. For five children none of the aforementioned was positive.
