Abstract

Malaria is 1 of the main causes of death in third world countries. It has become extinct in Israel and imported cases are rare, since most visitors to endemic countries take anti-malarial prophylaxis. We report an Israeli tourist to Kenya infected with falciparum malaria complicated by severe metabolic acidosis, renal failure and adult respiratory distress syndrome. After intensive care treatment this preventable condition improved.
