During the last years, immigration has increased and, consequently, the pool of foreign donors and associated infectious diseases from exotic countries (especially from the tropics) has also increased. Only a few cases of malaria transmitted via different donation sources have been published. In the present report, a Plasmodium vivax transmitted through a multiorgan donation is reported. In conclusion, we discuss the features related with the diagnosis, the treatment, and the special characteristics of a case in which the liver and not any other organ is the reservoir of the plasmodium.
