We have reported two cases of mixed infection of Plasmodium species, namely Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum, whose DNA was tested by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR). One case was a 29-year-old male, who presented fever and diurnal variation. He belonged to Jharkhand but was admitted in the emergency ward of PGIMER, Chandigarh, while the other was a 21-year-old female from Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, who was admitted to PGIMER, Chandigarh, with complaints of fever and vomiting. Smear test of peripheral blood of both the patients found the presence of P. falciparum while nested PCR diagnosis detected the DNAs of both P. vivax and P. falciparum.
