Abstract

Exchange transfusion has saved many lives and brain damages since its introduction. It not only removes bilirubin but also removes haemolytic antibodies and corrects anaemia. Often use as treatment for severe malaria when the transfused blood is not properly screened. We report a case of neonatal malaria as a complication of exchange transfusion that is uncommon even in endemic areas.
