Abstract Malaria should be considered a risk factor in women who are pregnant, principally when the infection is Plasmodium falciparum. Moreover, the risk is greater if the woman is pregnant for the first time; if she has no immunity for malaria; if the diagnosis is made late; or if P. falciparum shows resistance to antimalarial drugs. This article presents the most significant aspects of P. falciparum malaria during pregnancy, including information about treatments and prophylaxis.
