The frequencies of the following blood group antigens: A, B, O, M, N, S, s, U, Fya, FyB, Lea, Jsa and K have been determined in Nigerian children with severe falciparum malaria. The frequency distribution of M, N, S, s, U, Fya and Fyb were not significantly different in children with life-threatening falciparum malaria and controls. The frequencies of A, B, O, Lea, Jsa and K found in the children with severe malaria were similar to those previously reported for healthy adults in this population. The Duffy blood group antigens Fya and Fyb were virtually absent from both infected and control children. This finding is in variance with a Fya frequency of 23% reported by Worlledge et al. (1974) for healthy adults in this population.
