Relapse in malaria

South African Medical Journal 83(10): 801
Relapse in malaria
The author dismisses the concept proposed by G.T. Nurse (South African Medical Journal (1993) 83, 79-80) that secondary invasion of the liver by merozoites takes place in the life cycles of Plasmodium malariae, P. ovale and P. vivax. Markus stresses that the stage responsible for relapse in malaria is a dormant sporozoite (named 'hypnozoite') and that hypnozoites occur in the liver in P. ovale and P. vivax infections only.
