Abstract

We report a microbiologically confirmed case of Brucella melitensis and Plasmodium falciparum malaria coinfection in a febrile traveler returning from Chad, Africa. The patient had been doing veterinary research in rural Chad; during that time she took no antimalarial chemoprophylaxis. Our report highlights the importance of blood cultures as well as malaria smears in febrile travelers returning from the tropics.
