Abstract

TAUIL, Pedro Luiz et al. Vivax malaria with long incubation period, detected in the Federal District: three case reports. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2010, vol.43, n.2, pp. 213-214. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822010000200023.

Three cases of vivax malaria originating from the Amazon region were detected after living in Brasilia, Federal District (considered to be a non-endemic area), for six months. Long incubation periods have been described only for infections due to strains of Plasmodium vivax in temperate climates. It was not possible to genotype the parasites.

Keywords : Malaria; Plasmodium vivax; Long incubation period.
