We developed a numerical model of blood flow in malaria infection. Our model was based on a particle method. All the components of blood were represented by finite number of particles. The membrane of red blood cells was modeled by triangular network of membrane particles. Stretch resistance and bending resistance were considered. The force generated by the deformation of membrane was substituted into the force term of Navier-Stokes equations only for membrane particles. The malaria parasite was assumed as a rigid object. Some interesting behavior of the infected and healthy red blood cells were simulated.
