A student repeatedly in contact with monkeys and mosquitoes infected with developed chills and a tertian pattern of fever which proved to be malaria. Parasitemia was submicroscopic, except on one occasion. However, the patient's blood on the 7th day of his illness was injected into a monkey, resulting in infection 7 days later. Clinically, the mild illness was characterized by severe headache, no abnormal objective physical signs, and slight though significant alterations in some hematologic and biochemical parameters.
