In brief: Depends

Not enough information; sorry.
The treatment course depends on: -disease severity--has it impacted brain, kidney, liver? -which form? P. Falciparum or p vivax? -resistance to medications? -age of person? -pregnancy? -medicine choice all these variables influence the length of malaria treatment. Briefest answer. Uncomplicated p. Falciparum--rx'd for 3 days uncomplicated p. Vivax rx'd 14 days.
