The Nigerian defender has been rushed in for tests after complaining of aching limbs and chronic fatigue.
Sodje's symptoms are reminiscent of those caused by the debilitating Malaria virus, and fears have been exacerbated by news that one of the defender's brothers has contracted the disease.
"One of his brothers has caught malaria and I think they spent time together in Nigeria," Crewe boss Dario Gradi admitted.
"It's very worrying."
Sodje had an impressive World Cup despite a disappointing tournament for Nigeria, and fans will have their fingers crossed that the scare proves to be a false alarm and the African can aid their quest to bounce back into Division One.
