Sažetak
Severe malaria is a medical emergency that requires urgent recognition and treatment, because it may rapidly progress to serious complications and death. We report a case of imported severe malaria tropica in an adult traveller, with a parasitemia of 20%, complicated by acute renal failure. Patient was initially misdiagnosed by a physician unaware of the importance of patients travel history, as having a viral infection. Despite the treatment delay, the patient was successfully cured with parenteral artemether combined with peroral mefloquine and vigorous supportivemeasures including renal replacement therapy.
