Abstract

A 32-year-old Italian man developed fever and general malaise 3 weeks after arrival in Zaïre. Malaria was diagnosed by a thick blood film, but consequent treatment with quinine was unsuccessful. After repatriation, the diagnosis of early stage sleeping sickness was established. Treatment with eflornithine (Ornidyl) resulted in complete recovery.
