These parasites were circulated among humans by different vectors around the world. Coatney et al. reported the first known case of naturally infected simian malaria, Plasmodium knowlesi, in human. Near to half of century later that discovery, with applying molecular techniques, detection and identification of simian malaria, especially P. knowlesi, was renewed.
