A 34-year-old Nigerian man presented with nephrotic syndrome. Renal biopsy revealed chronic membranous glomerulopathy with focal segmental sclerosis. Blood Giemsa smear contained rare Plasmodium sp. trophozoites and small subunit ribosomal RNA polymerase chain reaction amplification confirmed the presence of Plasmodium malariae. This case highlights the importance of obtaining even remote travel histories from ill immigrants and considering occult quartan malaria in patients from endemic locations with nephrotic syndrome.
