Malaria is primarily an imported disease in Singapore. Local outbreaks are uncommon. We describe a localised outbreak of three patients with Falciparum malaria, which we believe to be locally acquired. There was one fatality due to severe disease and late presentation. Malaria should be considered as a cause of febrile illness as the likelihood of cure depends on early detection and treatment.
