PMID:  14567836     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Transfusion-acquired malaria in a neonate is uncommon and factors such as drug resistance and concomitant G6PD deficiency can cause treatment difficulties. We report a 26-day-old premature infant with chloroquine-resistant malaria who underwent exchange transfusion. The aim was to correct anaemia, decrease parasitaemia and remove G6PD-deficient cells to allow successful use of quinine.
