From: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency among malaria suspects attending Gambella hospital, southwest Ethiopia

G6PD Status Parasite density/log10 μl Hb (g/dl) HCT (%) MCV (fl) MCH (pg) MCHC (%)

  1. G6PD: glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase; Hb: haemoglobin concentration; HCT: haematocrit; MCV: mean corpuscular volume; MCH: mean corpuscular haemoglobin; MCHC: mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration; RBC: red blood cell; SD: standard deviation.
