Abstract
In Korea, malaria is known to have been eradicated for several years due to our persistent national health programs. But recently imported malarias through increased traveling to abroad are becoming a problem and occasional malarial infections are being reported. No malarial infection of pregnant woman has been reported until now, but recently, we have experienced one case of malaria infected pregnant woman who has no history of traveling and blood transfusion. This patient has been treated with hydroxychlorquine. We present this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Malaria, Pregnancy
