Malaria is the most important parasitic disease in the world, in terms of both prevalence and mortality. Infection rate is high due to raise of strains resistant to the antimalarial medicines & social factors. Although cerebral malaria due to Plasmodium Vivax (P. Vivax) is rare, few cases with multiple cerebral infarct following P. Vivax infection have been reported. Plasmodium Falciparum (P. falciparum) malaria infections are thought to account for the vast majority of cerebral malaria cases and various neurological manifestations. Stroke is extremely unknown in cases of P.Vivax malaria. Here we report a rare case of young stroke with cerebral malaria in P. Vivax infection.
