Dear sir,

I read with interest the case report by Venugopal and Haider in the January-March issue of your esteemed journal. [1] However, their claim that it is the first case of acute haemorrhagic leucoencephalitis following Plasmodium vivax malaria is not tenable.

Yadav et al., have published a case of acute necrotising encephalopathy associated with P. vivax malaria in the March 2010 issue of the Indian Journal of Paediatrics. [2]

A proper literature search using Medical Subject Headings terms can minimise errors of this sort.
