About the Authors
  • The efficiency and speed of modern travel has exposed increasing numbers of people to a wide variety of infections which may not be well known to most 'western' physicians. These may enter temperate countries in their immigrant hosts and often only become clinically manifest after their arrival in their newly adopted country, where they may need to be diagnosed rapidly. This book provides a coverage of tropical disease due to parasites including protozoa, nematodes, trematodes, cestodes, acanthocephala and arthropods, as well as bacteria, rickettsia and viruses. It discusses the epidemiological and clinical aspects of each disease in detail and illustrates the biology and life cycle of the causatory organism, as well as the pathology associated with infection and details of the treatment and long term management of the disease. The aim of the book is to provide a broad readership with a comprehensive, highly illustrated overview of the diseases covered and a practical guide to their diagnosis and treatment.

    • Written by an author team with years of experience of dealing with tropical infectious diseases
    • Aims to give a clear account of each disease, with practical information on diagnosis and treatment
