A Case of Postmalaria Neurologic Syndrome and Pediatric Literature Review

Abstract

Postmalaria neurologic syndrome is an under-recognized self-resolving acute neuropsychiatric condition, usually occurring after complete recovery from malaria. We describe the case of a 7-year-old child who presented with an afebrile lymphocytic meningoencephalitis. The notion of a previously treated malaria episode and the absence of malaria during current episode led us postmalaria neurologic syndrome diagnosis with secondary spontaneous outcome.
