Malaria could progress to a chronic form in individuals with partial immunity. Chronic malaria is often characterized by the lack of acute malaria symptoms. Thus, this disorder was considered as asymptomatic carrier state. Hyper-reactive malarial splenomegaly (HMS) is likely the most severe chronic form of malaria. HMS-earlier known as tropical splenomegaly syndrome - has classic manifestations. The manifestations of HMS include, massive splenomegaly, elevated titers of anti-malarial antibodies and polyclonal immunoglobulin M hypergammaglobulinemia.
