Malaria Journal, 04/30/2012Bujalance SG et al.
This article describes two cases of HIV–positive patients, who returned from malaria–endemic areas and presented a parasitaemia >5% of erythrocytes and clinical signs of severe falciparum malaria, both with >350 CD4 cell count/mul, absence of chemoprophylaxis and successful response. Factors like drug interactions and the possible implication of anti–malarial therapy bioavailability are all especially interesting in HIV–malaria co–infections.
