Overview

Lecture Notes on Tropical Medicine is a core text with an emphasis on the clinical aspects of problem-solving in the tropics. This new, revised edition includes a more global and syndromic approach to tropical medicine.

Section A covers clinical presentations according to body systems and syndromic approaches, so that the reader can go straight to the relevant section for clues to the likely diagnosis. Section B gives core knowledge & clinical advice on the major tropical infections such as malaria and leprosy. The final section covers other serious tropical diseases, grouped by main body system of presentation, which includes cholera, hepatitis and scabies amongst others.

Additionally, this edition includes new chapters that broaden the traditional scope of ‘tropical medicine’. These include a chapter on HIV & Aids which reflects the impact that these have had on the tropics, a chapter on non-communicable diseases and their management, as well as a new chapter on refugee health that covers humanitarian emergencies, control of epidemics as well as health assessment of asylum seekers. As always, carefully selected colour plates and an increased number of illustrations, effectively portray clinical conditions. This fifth edition of Lecture Notes on Tropical Medicine is a very practical companion for the increasing number of medical students and junior doctors who have the opportunity to practice medicine in the tropics. It is also a key resource for clinicians who see patients with 'tropical' disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'[this book] tells you what the safe humane doctor actually does when confronted by an will patient with only his or her clinical skills for guidance, nothing in the laboratory pipeline and a very limited choice of available treatments’
British Medical Journal

"An ideal quick reference text with just that little bit extra and no burden of detail"
2nd Opinion, 1996

"Buy it if you want a refreshingly practical book for your tropical elective"
Sheffield Medical Gazette, 1997

'easy to access and up-to-date'
British Journal of Dermatology

'provides excellent value for money'
Tropical Diseases Bulletin

"Perfect for third years off on their electives who need a lightweight reference book, and a useful grounding for students considering tropical medicine as a future career."

    Outstanding Field Reference

    I'm a U.S. trained emergency physician with good clinical skills, but limited tropical medicine exposure. Used this book on a short term mission trip to Rwanda. It's compact and travels well. This book is very well organized. The first section of the book deals with syndromic presentations. The book also helps the clinician make decisions in situations with limited resources. The second half of the book gives most of the disease-specific details a clinician will need in treating patients. There are several pages of helpful pictures. More of these would be great in future additions. Overall a remarkable accomplishment. My thanks to the authors.
