Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD (Harvard Medical School)
Description: This is an edited, up-to-date, in-depth text on the scientific basis for the current understanding of tropical infectious diseases, including their molecular pathogenesis, treatment, and control.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the definitive text on the newest concepts of molecular pathogenesis and a practical guide to clinical management of tropical infectious diseases.
Audience: It is directed toward the clinician practicing in the tropics or seeing patients with potential exposure to tropical infections. The editors are all from the U.S., with the majority of the contributors based in the U.S. (resulting in a particular point of view), but all are internationally recognized authorities in tropical infectious diseases.
Features: There are three sections. The first includes chapters on essential disciplines such as epidemiology, innate and acquired immunity, virulence, and control strategies, all of which are basic to the understanding of tropical diseases. The second, dealing with specific pathogens, has some excellent large illustrations of parasitic diseases. The latest developments in molecular pathogenesis and disease control (allowing for the usual lead time for a text such as this one to be written and published) are included. Section three emphasizes the international traveler and has a syndrome-based approach to the patient who may have been exposed to tropical diseases. The text is well referenced, well illustrated, and has a clear index.
Assessment: This two-volume book provides an excellent addition to tropical medicine texts. It presents in detail and in depth the current scientific understanding of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of tropical infectious diseases in a clear and concise manner. In addition, the section dealing with the practical approach to the patient with specific syndromes is much more exhaustively dealt with in comparison with other textbooks. This is especially true when the non-immune patient who has traveled to a tropical country is discussed. This book will be a valuable reference for the practitioner in travel medicine as well.
Journal of the American Medical Association
Tropical Infectious Diseases is an outstanding contribution and should become a classic in its field. It is must reading for all physicians working in tropical infectious diseases, and should be on the shelves of all physicians in the field of infectious diseases. The text as a whole, especially the sections on principles and practice, will provide interesting reading for all physicians in the clinical practice of medicine.
