Abstract: Objectives: This retrospective analysis performed in Manhiça, Southern Mozambique aimed to describe the occurrence of post-malarial anaemia (measured as a decrease of haematocrit ≥10%) and the need for blood transfusions in children with severe malaria treated with intravenous quinine or parenteral artesunate. Methods: All children = 10%) in the first weeks after their episode, often requiring blood transfusions. Because of the high underlying prevalence of anaemia in malaria-endemic settings, all children with severe malaria need to be actively followed up, irrespective of the treatment received.
