Abstract

An 18 month old boy developed septic fever 14 days after surgery not responding to antibiotic treatment. The cause was found to be a transfusion transmitted infection with plasmodium falciparum. The patient completely recovered after anti-malaria treatment with quinine and halofantrine. Discussion: In cases of unclear septic illness up to 3 month after a bloodtransfusion,a transfusion malaria should be included in the differential diagnosis. The mortality rate is 15%. Early treatment can prevent a lethal outcome.
