Malaria is estimated to have a worldwide incidence of more than 100 million clinical cases and approximately 1 million deaths per year. Korea, although previously known as an endemic area of tertian malaria (Plasmodium vivax), has been considered free from malaria as there had been no report on indigenous cases since 1984. Recently, however, we experienced an indigenous case of P. vivax infection in a young man who had never been abroad. The patient was a 23-year-old Korean soldier with 18-day… Expand

  • 2020
Mass chemoprophylaxis combined with mosquito control activities greatly contributed to the decline of malaria situation among Korean military soldiers and the number of annual malaria cases has been decreasing slowly in Korea. Expand
Two vivax malaria cases detected in Korea.
The two vivax malaria cases, together with an additional patient detected in 1993, occurred in relatively small areas near DMZ and necessitated an epidemiologic surveillance, which found no other cases. Expand
Clinical Features of Plasmodium Vivax Malaria
It is suggested that malaria should be included in the differential diagnosis of febrile diseases with an onset between June to and September, regardless of the pattern of the fever. Expand
Vivax malaria which had been highly prevalent in Korea disappeared rapidly from the 1960s to 1984 when domestic occurrence of cases stopped. However, malaria reemerged in 1993 near the demilitarizedExpand
Current status of vivax malaria among civilians in Korea.
It seems highly probable that vivax malaria is established in the local areas and responsible for at least a part of transmission. Expand
A small epidemiological survey for vivax malaria in Kimpo-gun, Kyonggi-do, Korea undertaken after detecting two consecutive cases.
On July and August 1997, two 15-year-old mates of a football team of Tongjin Middle School in northern Kyonggi-do, Korea were consecutively diagnosed as vivax malaria by peripheral blood smear. TheyExpand

The data suggest that the clinical features of reemerging v Vivax malaria may be similar to those of Korean vivax malaria reported in the past, and patients responded promptly to chloroquine therapy. Expand
Outbreak of vivax malaria in areas adjacent to the demilitarized zone, South Korea, 1998.
It is postulated that there has been an epidemic of malaria in North Korea since 1993, with the number of cases increasing yearly; the continuous infiltration across the DMZ from North Korea of infected female mosquitoes of the vector species Anopheles sinensis resulted in an outbreak of vivax malaria in theDMZ of South Korea.

Clinical Analysis of Patients Treated for Malaria Disease at Bupyeong serim Hospital in Incheon
The clinical and epidemiologic features in malaria, which was diagnosed in the microscopic examination of blood using blood films during 7 years from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2011, and splenomegaly, displayed a clinical aspects and a good progress of treatment are analyzed. Expand
Re-emerging Plasmodium vivax malaria in the Republic of Korea.

The re-emerging malaria characteristically revealed a combination type of short and long incubation periods with predominance of the long type, and the treatment was successful in most patients. Expand


An outbreak of introduced malaria in California possibly involving secondary transmission.
During 1974, 12 cases of Plasmodium vivax malaria were reported from an agricultural area in California's Sacramento Valley. At least three of these cases resulted from local mosquito transmission.Expand
An outbreak of Plasmodium vivax malaria in Trinidad, W.I.
An outbreak of Plasmodium vivax malaria occurred in Trinidad some 25 years after a successful eradication programme. The 'index case' was infected while visiting Perdaneles, Venezuela, and wasExpand
[Study on natural infection of Plasmodium vivax in Anopheles sinensis in Korea]
On epidemiological grounds, Anopheles sinensis has been suspected for many years to be the malaria vector in Korea and one specimen was found for the first time in Korea naturally infected with sporozoites in August 1962. Expand
Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia of malaria.
The thrombocytopenia that complicates at least some malarial infections is caused by immune mechanisms; specific IgG binds to platelet-bound malaria antigen through the Fab portion of the immunoglobulin molecule. Expand
Quartan malarial nephrotic syndrome in children.
The presenting clinical and biochemical findings of the quartan malarial nephrotic syndrome are similar to those classically described for the nephrotsic syndrome in childhood, but the renal pathology seen on light, electron, and immunofluorescent microscopy show striking differences and distinctive features.
