Plasmodium malariae infection was detected in Bastar district (M.P.) during malaria survey in 1981-83. The data collected during the survey was compared with the earlier records of P. malariae infection in the area. From the data it can be seen that the infection in this area has declined due to the ecological/developmental activities undertaken by Government. All the cases were found to be indigenous and approximately 62 per cent infection was found in age group of 10-14 years irrespective of sex. More than 60 per cent of P. malariae infections were positive for gametocytes. Three day regimen of 4-aminoquilines for the treatment was found quite effective.
