General enquiry - cerebral malaria (cross posted to bionet.general)

A cousin of mine has just made an recovery from cerebral malaria after having 
been brought home from Mocambique in a coma, and apparently this is quite a 
feat. My family, who were told that they should expect the worst, are 
overjoyed, and are asking me for an explanation of the illness (being the only 
family member with a degree in biochemistry). Well, rather than turn round and 
say that my knowledge of cerebral malaria ends at the sharp part of the 
mosquito (my only parasitology experience has been in Trypanosomiasis), I 
throw myself at the mercy of the collective knowledge on this group.

I would appreciate a fair amount of detail, if you have the time, or a pointer 
to an on-line source (no more university library these days).

Thanks in advance,
