Abstract: The current study was conducted in Women and Children Teaching Hospital (WCTH) district Bannu to correlate the Plasmodium vivax density on complete blood count (CBC). The study contained 137 blood samples of patients, who visited to the hospital with the complaints of fever, headache, abdominal pain and shivering. Among these 49 (35.766%) were found positive for P. vivax and 88 (64.233%) were found negative. Among the positive cases the male and female was recorded 65.306% and 34.693% respectively. The patients, who have less than ten years of age, were more infected by P. vivax. The maximum density in patients was recorded four per field in microscope but the density two were more abundant. The parasite density decreased with the increase in WBCs count. Similarly the platelets count increases when parasite density decreases. The maximum P. vivax density reduce the WBCs and platelets count which may weaken the immune system and the person exposed to other pathogens like salmonella, hepatitis viruses and other diarrhea causing agents etc. Furthermore the study helps us for the improvement of malaria control and other strategic plan among the population of district Bannu.
