Plasmodium falciparum thin film - note displaced parasite from red cell in tail of film. This is an artefact as a result of the preparation of the film. Although at the tail of the film, red cells both parasitized and non-parasitized may be artificially distorted in shape, it is important to note that the parasitized red cells are not enlarged or mis-shapened unlike red cells infected with P.vivax.
