malaria \ma*la"ri*a\, n. [It., contr. fr. malaaria bad air. See
Malice, and Air.]
1. Air infected with some noxious substance capable of
engendering disease; esp., an unhealthy exhalation from
certain soils, as marshy or wet lands, producing fevers;
Note: The morbific agent in malaria is supposed by some to be
a vegetable microbe or its spores, and by others to be
a very minute animal blood parasite (an infusorian).
2. (Med.) A human disease caused by infection of red blood
cells by a protozoan of the genus Plasmodium, giving
rise to fever and chills and many other symptoms,
characterized by their tendency to recur at definite and
usually uniform intervals. The protozoal infection is
usually transmitted from another infected individual by
the bite of an Anopheles mosquito.
