Increasing international travel and expatriation to sub-Saharan countries where malaria is endemic has raised public health concerns about the burden of imported malaria cases in Portugal. From 2009 to 2012, there was a 60\% increase in malaria hospitalizations, contradicting the declining trend observed since 2003. Older age was associated with longer length of stay in hospital and higher lethality.
