Malarial infection can be life-threatening to both the mother and the developing fetus. The placenta can show various histological changes, and the presence of mature parasites or malarial pigment in the placenta is necessary to define placental malaria. This is a case of a 28-year-old multigravida who presented with malaria and was found to have a hydropic fetus on ultrasonography. Hydropic change has not been reported so far in placental malaria.
