2013

Malaria Surveillance - United States, 2011
A total of 37 cases of malaria were reported among pregnant women in 2011, representing 6% of cases among all women (n = 654). The number of pregnant women with malaria did not change significantly from the 41 cases reported in 2010. Of the 37 cases among pregnant women, 11 (30%) cases were severe.

2011

Malaria Surveillance - United States, 2009 (4/29/2011)
In the United States, malaria cases can occur through exposure to infected blood products, congenital transmission, or local mosquitoborne transmission. Malaria surveillance is conducted to identify episodes of local transmission and to guide prevention recommendations for travelers. This report summarizes cases in persons with onset of illness in 2009 and summarizes trends during previous years.

Malaria Surveillance - United States, 2009 (4/20/2011)
In 2009, a total 19 cases of malaria were reported among pregnant women and three congenital malaria cases. Of the 19 cases in pregnant women, two had severe malaria, and none reported adherence to the chemoprophylaxis drug regimen.

Update: New Recommendations for Mefloquine Use in Pregnancy (12/8/2011)
CDC now recommends the antimalarial drug mefloquine for pregnant women both as a malaria treatment option and as an option to prevent malaria infection for all trimesters.
