The authors report a case of Plasmodium falciparum malaria and a case of lymphatic filariasis caused by Brugia malayi, imported by HIV-infected patients during trips in endemic countries. The clinical and laboratory picture, as well as treatment response of imported malaria and filariasis did not differ significantly in patients with HIV infection compared with immunocompetent subjects. The exposition to tropical diseases during exotic travels has to be taken into account, in the differential diagnosis of infectious disorders complicating the course of HIV disease.
