Case Report: Two cases of recurring ovale malaria in Sarawak, Malaysia, after successful treatment of imported Plasmodium falciparum infection

Abstract : Here are two cases of recurring ovale malaria in Sarawak, Malaysia, that are likely relapses that occurred 1-2 months after successful treatment of the initial imported falciparum malaria with artemisinin-based combined therapy. The patients have no history or recollection of previous malaria episodes. These cases add to the limited evidence on the relapsing nature of Plasmodium ovale, after a febrile episode. In regions where P. ovale is not known to be autochthonous, active follow-up of treated imported malaria patients is highly recommended following their return, particularly to areas nearing or having achieved elimination.
