Abstract

Malaria during pregnancy can cause various feto-maternal complications. Life threatening respiratory involvement is rare with vivax malaria but common with Plasmodium falciparum. In most of the cases severe respiratory involvement occurs, after beginning of anti-malarial treatment. We are reporting a case which involved a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, as the pregnant woman with severe preeclampsia developed acute respiratory distress, actually caused by Plasmodium vivax.

Keywords
