Introduction: Malaria is one of the major public health problems of our country. Factors responsible for reemergence of malaria in India are emergence and spread of drug-resistant strains across the country coupled with a steady rise in insecticide resistance of vector mosquitoes. Materials and Methods: In this study, a total of 100 patients were diagnosed to be positive for Plasmodium vivax infection through a rapid diagnostic test, which was confirmed by peripheral smear from August 2015 to October 2015. All the cases were studied for the complications that can be seen with P. vivax malaria. Results: In this study of 100 patients positive for vivax malaria, approximately 72 had complications such as thrombocytopenia, anemia, pancytopenia, jaundice, respiratory distress, renal failure, and cerebral malaria. Out of the 72 patients, 70 improved with no complications, but two patients died. Conclusion: Complications with vivax malaria are on the rise, and hence vivax malaria should not be neglected.
