An atypical imported case of malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum in a subject who had never used chemoprophylaxis
A case of P. falciparum malaria in a 35-year-old Italian male who failed to take chemoprophylactics during a safari trip to Kenya, is reported. 10 days after his return to Italy, the patient developed a recurrent fever (without chills or bouts of sweating), headaches and light arthromyalgia. There was no hepatosplenomegaly. Mild, slow developing anaemia was noted. 27 days after hospitalization P. falciparum trophozoites were seen. Parasitaemia was low (1/2000 erythrocytes).
