Abstract

We present a case of a primigravid woman who presented with nearly 3 years after she last visited a malaria-endemic region. We review the literature to identify case reports of recrudescent malaria during pregnancy, including those with prolonged latency. Reports of recrudescence of during pregnancy are limited. infection can persist for years. Recrudescence can occur with waning of immunity following departure from endemic areas. Pregnancy, particularly the primigravid state, is a risk factor for severe infection.
