Abstract

Malaria is one of the three most dangerous diseases in the world which annually affects 200 million people. Poland has been declared malaria-free since 1963 and all registered cases are imported from areas endemic for the disease. Some of the patients develop acute renal injury, glomerulonephritis and chronic kidney disease in the course of malaria. We present a case of patient returning from Gambia and Senegal who developed acute renal injury requiring dialysis therapy during the disease of malaria, with subsequent total recovery of the kidney function.
