Abstract

Recent evidence suggests an increasing incidence of malaria among the civilian population of the United States. The effects of malaria in pregnancy can be serious to both mother and fetus. We present four patients with malaria during pregnancy and review the charts of 18 additional patients with malaria (two of whom were pregnant) in order to familiarize the reader with the general clinical picture. The currently recommended chemoprophylaxis and treatment are outlined.
