Abstract: It has been recognized that either malaria or HIV infection may cause dysfunctions of the immune system (M. Ho et al., 1986, J. Infect. Dis., 153: 163-111; A. S. Fauci et aL, 1988, Science, 259; 617-622), although HIV infection leads to immunodeficiency with higher impact in clinical feature than malaria infection. Thus, it can be anticipated that the association of both infections would further deteriorate the immune function and modify the natural history of these infections. We show in this report a patient who presented both infections but had some immune functions surprisingly preserved.
