Abstract: Blood samples of malaria patients (n = 30), selected based on the severity of parasitemia, were divided into low (LP), medium (MP) and high (HP) parasitemia, which represent increasing levels of the disease severity. Healthy subjects (n = 10) without any history of disease were selected as a control group. By processing of erythrocytes images their contours were obtained and from these the shape parameters area, perimeter and form factor were obtained. The gray level intensity was determined by scanning of erythrocyte along its largest diameter. A comparison of these with that of normal cells showed a significant change in shape parameters. The gray level intensity decreases with the increase of severity of the disease. The changes in shape parameters directly and gray level intensity variation inversely are correlated with the increase in parasite density due to the disease.
