AbstractWe report the case of a patient from Mali who, after 10 years of living in Spain, presented with symptomatic Plasmodium falciparum malaria without having visited an endemic area during that time. We cannot completely rule out the possibility of indigenous transmission, but this case most likely represents recrudescence of an infection acquired over 10 years earlier.
