Abstract

The spectrum of acute renal failure in Falciparum malaria varies from mild urinary abnormalities to acute renal failure. Acute tubular necrosis has been reported in 1% patients, and acute cortical necrosis has rarely been reported. We present a case of acute cortical necrosis in a young patient with Falciparum malaria who had a prolonged oligo-anuric course followed by partial recovery of renal function.
