O. A. Iyamu, A. J. Ugheoke, W. A. Adisa, H. O. Otamere, O. Aigbe, A. P. Ediangbe andD. E.Odiase

The aim was to highlight the accidental clinical observation that overzealous administration of sugar based fluids has a negative effect on cerebral malaria prognosis, and also to emphasize that a thorough understanding of the physiochemical factors in the pathological process is necessary for successful management. Cerebral malaria is an extreme form of severe malarial disease commoner in persons of immature or compromised immunity. A case of the disease is herein reported.
