Our Approach to Treating

Fever in Returning Travelers

Travelers may return home and develop a fever, especially those who have visited parts of the world where resources are limited. Any international traveler who develops fever in the weeks after returning home should be evaluated. Although there are many causes of fever, travel-related infections, such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, or typhoid fever, are potential reasons a fever develops after a trip abroad.

NYU Langone physicians identify the cause of an illness or fever in returning travelers. They can then develop a treatment plan based on the diagnosis.

Treatment for Fever in Returning Travelers

Medication is used to treat most travel-associated infections. NYU Langone doctors decide which medication is best for you based on the organism causing the infection and the part of the world where you acquired it.
