Abstract

We describe 2 patients with complications of Plasmodium vivax malaria. Both patients developed marked intravascular haemolysis and haemoglobinuria despite normal levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity in blood. One required mechanical ventilation because of life-threatening hypoxia due to acute respiratory distress syndrome.
