malaria, delirious for ten days. The doctors told my parents that it was probably

Pathogenesis
The Protozoan parasites live inside cells, where they are largely hidden from the
immune response
Infection has a profound effect on the immune system and can cause immune
suppression
Dendritic cells suffer a maturation defect following interaction with infected
erythrocytes and become unable to induce protective liver-stage immunity
