Abstract

Post-malaria neurologic syndrome (PMNS) is a rare complication following a Plasmodium falciparum infection and its pathophysiology remains unclear. This is the first report of a pediatric PMNS following an infection acquired in Africa and the fourth description of pediatric PMNS overall. Neither intrathecal synthesis of Immunoglobin G nor specific P. falciparum antibodies were found in the cerebrospinal fluid.
