Tropical Diseases outlines the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases encountered in developing regions---areas where the unexpected can occur and where Western medical capabilities are often unavailable. Taking a pragmatic approach, it is an invaluable reference and resource for medical professionals and students travelling abroad or working in unfamiliar terrain.

Diseases profiled here include a brief historical background, main signs and symptoms, and practical methods of individual prevention and treatment. Additional features include:

- Over 60 maps depicting the geographic origins and modern distribution of tropical diseases

- A classification scheme for parasitic diseases according to the location of the final parasitic stage in the human body

- Clinical case studies

For the new or experienced health care provider, Tropical Diseases is a handy, practical guide to treating and avoiding disease in any environment.
