Misdiagnosis of Babesiosis as Malaria, Equatorial Guinea, 2014
Emerg Infect Dis. 2018 Aug;24(8):1588-1589.
We report a case of babesiosis, caused by Babesia microti, in a missionary who worked in Equatorial Guinea but also visited rural Spain. The initial diagnosis, based on clinical features and microscopy, was malaria. The patient's recovery was delayed until she received appropriate treatment for babesiosis.
