Abstract Lipid peroxidation was assessed by measuring malondialdehyde (MDA) in 30 patients with falciparum malaria and 20 controls (10 healthy adults and 10 patients of vivax malaria). Mean serum MDA was 0.96 +/- 0.38 nmol/ml, 1.1 +/- 0.17 nmol/ml and 2.9 +/- 1.1 nmol/ml in healthy controls, disease controls and falciparum malaria patients, respectively. Levels were significantly high (P less than 0.001) in patients with falciparum malaria. Higher values were associated with more number of complications and deaths.
