In Australia, all four human Plasmodium species are routinely detected, with cases typically arising in migrants, travellers, soldiers, and refugees . Traditionally, light microscopy has been utilized in Plasmodium species detection; however, the last decade has seen the introduction of nucleic acid amplification-based diagnostic assays , including rapid real-time PCR methods [3, 4].
