Following the study done in 1990 concerning the existence of glomerular lesions in falciparum malaria, this study, pursued on large scale, included 110 persons (30 healthy persons, 11 other than falciparum malaria, and 69 cases of falciparum malaria). 30.4% among these 69 cases of falciparum malaria presented glomerular affect signs. A complete clinical and biological recovery was obtained with quinine injection.
