Abstract

Two Japanese with ovale malaria and a Cameroonian with malariae malaria were put on mefloquine and were successfully treated as long as they were observed. Two of the 3 cases entered into this study because the possibility of falciparum malaria was not excluded by the physicians who first examined their blood specimens. These case reports offer a promising alternative to chloroquine in the treatment of ovale and malariae malaria.
