Malaria and nutritional status among children with severe acute malnutrition in Niger: a prospective cohort study
MetadataShow full item record
JournalClinical Infectious Diseases
AbstractThe relationship between malaria infection and nutritional status is complex and previous studies suggest malaria may increase the incidence and severity of malnutrition while malnutrition may increase the risk of malaria infection. Here, we report bi-directional associations between malaria and nutritional status among children with uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition (SAM).
