Imported Plasmodium vivax malaria in France: geographical origin and report of an atypical case acquired in Central or Western Africa

, : Imported Plasmodium vivax malaria in France: geographical origin and report of an atypical case acquired in Central or Western Africa. Acta Tropica 78(2): 177-181

A total of 73 cases of Plasmodium vivax infections acquired in Western or Central Africa were diagnosed on microscopical criteria in French travellers from 1995 to 1998. We report a case of P. vivax infection in a non immune traveller confirmed by polymerase chain reaction and presenting an atypical P. ovale morphology. The infection was acquired in Western or Central Africa. These microscopical observations, together with the molecular evidence for P. vivax in Western and Central Africa suggest that P. vivax is transmitted in this area despite lacking the Duffy receptor in autochthonous population.
