Malaria is a serious infectious illness caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The parasites are injected into red blood cells by the Anopheles mosquito, causing the cells to eventually burst. In this accurately detailed design, taken directly from bloods smears by Dr. Rick Fairhurst, you malariologists will recognize the characteristic single and double “signet ring” appearance within the RBCs, overlaying the slide forms.

A cool design, and a wearable reminder that Malaria kills nearly 2 million people annually, and is becoming increasingly resistant to treatment. Original images courtesy of Rick Fairhurst, M.D., Ph. D.

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design, which reads:

"MALARIA is caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Characterized by their signet ring appearance, the parasites develop within red blood cells, causing them to burst. Malaria kills nearly 2 million people every year, and is becoming increasingly resistant to treatment."
