In brief: Malaria/ pregnancy

Ferile pregnant patients who have been to an area where malaria is endemic can result in serious morbidity and mortality.
Gravid patient are 10 times more likely to contract malaria than non gravid ones.
For 27 weeks gestation, the best option for anti malaria include:
chloroquine, quinine, atovaquone-proguanil, and mefloquine. Discuss with your doctor.
