Malaria is caused by a protozoan belonging to the genus, Plasmodium with five species: Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium malariae, and Plasmodium knowlesi that infect humans (WHO, 2012). Globally, an estimated 3.3 billion people are at risk of being infected with malaria and developing disease, and 1.2 billion are at high risk to acquire the disease. A retrospective study was carried out at a tertiary care PHC center in Maval. The sex wise incidence of Malaria due to Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum showed a similar pattern having more incidences in males than females during both the years 2013-2014 (677 males > 390 females) and 2014-2015 (891 males > 562 females) respectively.

Key words: Sex wise Malaria, Maval.
