Renal insufficiency as a complication of severe malaria is a rare pathology. A case was observed in young girl aged 10.5 years following Plasmodium malaria fever. Clinical features included severe anemia, oligo-anuria, and creatinemia of 80 mg/l. The haemoglobin electrophoresis was standard. Under furosemide, the resumption of diuresis was effective nine days later. Renal functions of the child affected by severe Plasmodium malarial fever must always be checked.
