Abstract

Although Plasmodium vivax usually causes benign uncomplicated malaria, it can occasionally result in severe disease with life-threatening, end-organ involvement generally seen with falciparum malaria. We report a case of cerebral malaria caused by P. vivax and review the literature on this subject.
