Malaria is a well-known mosquito-borne illness and it continues to be a major public health problem at the start of new millennium. The problem is persistent in both rural and urban area. The problem in rural India is that the settlements are difficult to approach; road and transport facilities are minimal, limited health care facilities and inappropriate preventive measures. we studied the pattern and seasonal trend of malaria infection from Mewat region. Study was carried out at SHKM Government Medical College Mewat, Haryana. All suspected cases of malaria were tested by peripheral blood film and examine under light microscope.In one year study 575 (12.7%) patients were slide positive out of 4500. According to types of plasmodium species Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum accounted for 73.9% and 24.6% of malaria morbidity respectively. Malaria was reported in all age groups and both sexes, but the 21–30 year age group were affected more (24.1%) and 55.65% patients were 11to 40 years. Males were more affected than females. Majority of cases reported in September and October months. The present study reported the prevalence of Plasmodium vivax more than Plasmodium falciparum in our region.
