Erratum to: Malar J (2016) 15:141 DOI 10.1186/s12936-016-1188-7

The authors of [1] would like to highlight the following corrections to their original article published in Malaria Journal.

In the third paragraph of ‘Case detection and clinical outcome’ in the “Results” section of [1], “acute renal dysfunction (5.3 %)” should be replaced as “severe anaemia (5.3 %)”.

In addition, in Table 3 of the original publication [1], the Overall Complicated signs/symptoms on coma should be 25 (1.8 %), Cerebral lesion be 23 (1.6 %), Gastrointestinal damage 32 (2.3 %), Liver function impairment 38 (2.7 %) and Severe anaemia 25 (1.8 %). The following is our corrected Table 3.

Table 3 Clinical manifestation of imported malaria cases by outpatient and inpatient in nine provinces of China

We regret these mistakes.
