T cells attack Plasmodium-infected hepatocytes when fighting malaria, and it was thought that T cells first encountered Plasmodium antigens in the liver. Instead, immediately after infection, small numbers of parasites drain to skin lymph nodes where they can prime T cells to mount a protective immune response (pages 1035–1041).
