Haemolytic anaemia after oral artemether-lumefantrine treatment in a patient affected by severe imported falciparum malaria

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Artemisinin and its derivatives are essential components of artemisinin-based combination therapies for treating severe falciparum malaria. In this paper, we describe the occurrence of haemolysis after oral artemether-lumefantrine treatment. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second reported case of a patient affected by severe falciparum malaria with haemolytic anaemia that is likely associated with oral artemether-lumefantrine treatment.
