Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a patient with Plasmodium vivax malaria that was acquired in Cairns in October 1996. Rather than being "introduced" (i.e., derived from an imported case), we believe this is likely to have been a case of "airport malaria" (i.e., acquired from an infected mosquito imported in an aircraft). It is, to our knowledge, the first report of airport malaria in Australia.
