 en Case Report-Multidrug resistant malaria in splenectomized patient
Tauro LF, Roshan M, Hegde N, Bhat KS, Vivek

Abstract

Malaria is a dangerous infection in splenectomized individuals. In endemic areas, managing malaria in such individuals is a clinical challenge. In the tropics, death from malaria after splenectomy has been reported, but no formal study has been undertaken. Here we discuss a case of multidrug resistant malaria in a splenectomized patient, managed by antimalarial drugs and exchange transfusion with a successful outcome.

Keywords
