Few studies also demonstrated that different clinical presentations of vivax malaria infection are strongly associated with a potent activation of pro-inflammatory responses and cytokine imbalance (8-11).The sequestration of parasitized RBCs in the pulmonary microcirculation may initiate lung damage via direct endothelial activation and recruitment of host inflammatory responses, which can continue after treatment with antimalarial drugs. The occurrence of ARDS/ ALI when a parasite is declining or has been cleared suggests a post-treatment inflammatory effect as a contributory cause.
