Here are two cases of recurring ovale malaria in Sarawak, Malaysia, that are likely relapses that occurred 1–2 months after successful treatment of the initial imported falciparum malaria with artemisinin-based combined therapy. The patients have no history or recollection of previous malaria episodes. These cases add to the limited evidence on the relapsing nature of , after a febrile episode.
