Can malaria result in frequent urination, especially during night?
Malaria can affect the kidneys, especially malaria caused by P. falciparum. This could result in changes to urination patterns. However, at this stage in the infection, the patient would also be experiencing severe fever, chills and other symptoms associated with malaria. The fever would also likely be causing dehydration if the patient was not taking on sufficient fluids, which would result in less frequent urination.
