Malaria is an infectious disease caused by Plasmodium parasites. These parasites are primarily spread by the bite of infected female Anopheles mosquitos. There are four main types of Plasmodium (P) species that infect humans:

Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium ovale, which cause a relapsing form of the disease, as well as Plasmodium malariae and Plasmodium falciparum, which do not cause relapses.
