• Angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia (AILD) developed during the course of chronic Plasmodium malariae infection. Treatment of the chronic malaria with chloroquine phosphate resulted in a dramatic resolution of AILD. Thus, this case report lends support to the hypothesis that AILD begins as an exaggerated immune response to a foreign antigen.
