Malaria Treatment (United States)
Malaria can be a severe, potentially fatal disease (especially when caused by Plasmodium falciparum), and treatment should be initiated as soon as possible. Which drug regimen to treat a patient with malaria depends on the clinical status of the patient, the type (species) of the infecting parasite, the area where the infection was acquired and its drug-resistance status, pregnancy status, and finally history of drug allergies, or other medications taken by the patient.
