Although not identical, the late inflammatory response in severe malaria leading to capillary permeability shares many similarities with the immunologic response in bacterial sepsis.

Summary of the management of severe falciparum malaria.
Special clinical features of severe malaria and management of common complications in children. Our case report discusses a patient with severe imported malaria complicated by shock, successfully managed with large-volume fluid resuscitation, hemodynamic optimization, early antimalarial agents, and broad-spectrum antibiotics.
The optimal volume resuscitation strategy for patients with severe malaria is not well-defined.
Special clinical features and management of severe malaria in pregnancy. Who is at risk? Fluid and electrolyte disturbances. Notes on antimalarial drugs.
Algid malaria treated with early goal-directed therapy.
She had rapid reversal of circulatory shock, cleared her parasitemia in less than 48 hours with antimalarial therapy, and was discharged home on hospital day 6 in good condition. This report questions the strategy of cautious fluid resuscitation in algid malaria and suggests that case series comparing goal-directed resuscitation to historic controls along with prospective multicenter controlled trials should be conducted to determine the best fluid resuscitation strategy.
A coma scale for children. She was resuscitated with 5.
