Abstract

We report a clinical case of severe malaria, where the rate of initial parasitaemia by Plasmodium falciparum was 43 %. Multiple organ dysfunction, including ARDS, forced admission in a close surveillance unit, with survival of the same. A brief review of the subject is made, focusing on severity and general conduct, alerting and awareness for this entity, whose expression, among us, could take on increasing importance.
