ABSTRACT:   This cross-sectional, comparative study was done to compare and correlate some plasma proteins (albumin and fibrinogen) and red cell aggregations (rouleaux and rosette formations) among healthy adult males, uncomplicated falciparum malaria and moderately severe falciparum malaria in Myanmar male patients. Rouleaux formation (determined by ESR) and fibrinogen concentration were significantly greater (p<0.05) in uncomplicated malaria (56.17
