Abstract

The splenic complications of acute malaria include two different prognostic and treatment entities: splenic infarction and splenic rupture. This is the first case of splenic infarction during an acute malaria due to Plasmodium ovale in a 34-year-old man. As in the majority other described cases of splenic infarction, the course was spontaneously favourable, suggesting that this complication was relatively benign compared to splenic rupture, which is life-threatening and usually necessitating surgery.
