Post Malarial Neurological Syndrome

Post Malarial Neurological Syndrome a manifestation of cerebral malaria is known to be caused by plasmodium falciparum. It’s characterized by aphasia, tremors, myoclonus, psychiatric manifestations and white matter patchy changes in MRI. Post malarial neurological syndrome causes mild neurological deficits to severe encephalopathies. We present a case with this syndrome and all its neuroradiological and EEG manifestations caused by plasmodium vivax. Vivax malaria is known to have a more benign course. In our review, we found no reports suggestive of post malarial neurological syndrome caused by plasmodium vivax. We therefore report the case and review the manifestations of Post Malarial Neurological Syndrome.
