Abstract

This report describes a case of P. falciparum transmission by a recent-immigrant renal donor. The donor tested negative upon microscopy of a thick blood smear. The diagnosis was made after analysis of a Quantified Buffy Coat. In our opinion, a renal donor from a malaria endemic country should be pre-treated with antimalarials.
