Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a well-known complication in Plasmodium falciparum infection. It is less frequently described in Plasmodium vivax, and only one case is reported in Plasmodium ovale. Here we present the second description of this pulmonary complication in a P. ovale acute infection.
