When a malaria parasite invades and matures inside a red blood cell (RBC), the infected RBC (IRBC) becomes stiffer and cytoadherent and these two outcomes can lead to microvascular blockage. We propose a numerical model of the three-dimensional hemodynamics in malaria infection. Our model is based on a Lagrangian and free mesh method (particle method). We employ spring network of membrane particles for representing deformation of RBC membrane. Adhesive property of IRBCs to surrounding cells is also expressed by using a spring model. Our method would be helpful for further understandings of pathology of malaria-infection.
