Abstract
The incidence of malaria in Korea is significantly on the rise since its reemergence in 1993 and no screening test that can prevent the infection has been available. Very low birth weight infants are especially susceptible to malaria infection due to transfusions from multiple donors. We report a case of transfusion transmitted Plasmodium vivax infection in a 120-day-old infant of a gestational age 24 weeks with birth weight of 700 gm who was successfully treated with hydroxychloroquine.
Key Words: Very low birth weight infant, Transfusion, Plasmodium vivax
