We present a case of Plasmodium vivax malaria who presented with distal lower limb gangrene. Large vessels of the lower limb were normal. After ruling out other causes, a diagnosis of symmetrical peripheral gangrene was made. The dry gangrene was treated conservatively, and amputation planned after the line of demarcation was seen.
