Abstract

The continuing trend of German citizens to travel internationally and the steep rise in the number of migrants and refugees from malaria-endemic countries have led to an increase in the number of malaria cases in Germany in recent years. The unspecific symptoms can lead to misdiagnoses, possibly resulting in severe and life-threatening courses of the disease. Knowledge concerning the signs and symptoms, diagnostics and therapy of malaria is therefore important for pediatricians, especially those caring for refugees or for travelers and migrants visiting friends and relatives in malaria-endemic countries.
