Abstract

Summary

A case of low-grade parasitemia and severe anemia associated with the serologic stigmata of autoimmune disease, a positive Coombs test, positive serologic test for syphilis, positive rheumatoid factor, and slight elevation of the serum gamma globulin fraction is described. Coombs-positive hemolysis has not been previously reported in untreated malaria. The possible significance of the Coombs test and the mechanism of anemia in malaria are discussed.
