Abstract

We report on malaria acquired by German tourists to formerly non-endemic tourist resorts in the Dominican Republic between July 1999 and March 2000. Falciparum malaria is endemic in the western provinces and the hinterland of the Dominican Republic. By contrast, the risk of contracting malaria has always been considered so low in the main tourist resorts in the eastern part of the country that antimalarial chemoprophylaxis was not recommended.
