    and the variety of metabolic pathways open to Plasmodium for lipid production are discussed. Examples of what can be done to disorganize this metabolism are also considered. The subtle changes induced in the lipid organization of the host erythrocyte after Plasmodium infection are examined. These topics are discussed under the headings: structure of lipids; lipids of Plasmodium and the surrounding plasma; biosynthetic metabolic pathways of glycerolipids; phospholipid metabolism: an original target for new malaria chemotherapy; structural organization of lipids in the host cell membrane; dynamics of lipids within infected cells.
