We present some recent data from surveys in several African localities as well as analyses of Malaria Reference Laboratory data for patterns of presentation of these parasite species among imported malaria cases in the UK, and consider the possibility that a substantial hidden burden of infection exists.

We used a genus- and species-specific nested polymerase chain reaction, targeting highly conserved regions of the small subunit ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA) gene, to investigate the presence of malaria parasites in a total number of 379 patient samples in a survey of patients with febrile illnesses in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Southeastern Bangladesh.

Malaria has had a greater impact on world history than any other infectious disease. More than 300 to 500 million individuals worldwide are infected with Plasmodium spp, and 1.5 to 2.7 million people a year, most of whom are children, die from the infection.
