Plasmodium ovale malaria acquired in central Spain
Emerg Infect Dis. 2002;8(12):1506-8.
We describe a case of locally acquired Plasmodium ovale malaria in Spain. The patient was a Spanish woman who had never traveled out of Spain and had no other risk factors for malaria. Because patients with malaria may never have visited endemic areas, occasional transmission of malaria to European hosts is a diagnostic and clinical challenge.
