Answer

Consider consulting an infectious disease specialist for assistance with malaria diagnosis, treatment, and disease management. The CDC is an excellent resource if no local resources are available. To obtain the latest recommendations for malaria prophylaxis and treatment from the CDC, call the CDC Malaria Hotline at (770) 488-7788 or (855) 856-4713 (M-F, 9 am-5 pm, Eastern time). For emergency consultation after hours, call (770) 488-7100 and ask to talk with a CDC Malaria Branch clinician. [43]
