PALUDISMO POR PARASITACIÓN MIXTA CON PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM Y PLASMODIUM MALARIAE
Figure 1. Microscopic examination (100x) of Wright-Giemsa stained peripheral blood smear from the patient revealed ring forms of Plasmodium parasites. P. falciparum rings have delicate cytoplasm and one or two small chromatin dots.

We present a case of a male from Ghana who lives in Spain and comes back after visiting his country for the first time in 10 years. He received malarial chemoprophylactic treatment for 3 weeks (before and during the trip), but not after the return.
