A second haemolytic crisis of blackwater fever BWF following a combination of artemether-lumefantrine intake, in an 8-year-old Congolese boy is reported. The patient had a history of BWF after quinine intake. He was given artemether-lumefantrine treatment for malaria. He was free from G6PD deficiency and abnormal haemoglobin. Sepsis was eliminated. Haemolysis was noted with 5. Low-level Plasmodium falciparum was found.
The outcome was favourable with rehydration. BWF has been described with quinine, mefloquine and halofantrine. Several case reports have been published of haemolysis after lumefantrine, but it is quite rare. This case has a major therapeutic implication: aryl-amino-alcohol should be strictly contraindicated in patients with history of BWF with aryl-amino-alcohols intake.

Hémolyse intravasculaire après prise d’artéméther-luméfantrine
Severe hemolytic anemia is an unusual complication of Wilson's disease. Blood smear analysis showed stippled red cells in one case; hemolytic anemia improved within a few weeks in both patients but progressive liver failure required transplantation in the other. Hemolysis probably results from the toxic effect of free serum copper on erythrocyte membrane. Previous Article La pelade est-elle une maladie psychosomatique? Misery, H.
