REOYO-PASCUAL, José Felipe et al. Acute hemorrhagic necrotizing pancreatitis in falciparum malaria. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.5, pp.285-287. ISSN 1130-0108.

Malaria is a pathology caused by a parasite called Plasmodium, characteristic of tropical countries. The most frequent symptomatology includes cerebral malaria, jaundice, convulsive crisis, anemia, hypoglycemia, kidney failure and metabolic acidosis, among others. We are presenting the case of a patient diagnosed with malaria who suffered from acute hemorrhagic necrotizing pancreatitis and evolved poorly, as an example of this combination of symptoms, rarely found in our country.

Keywords : Acute pancreatitis; Malaria; Falciparum.
