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.

This is a core text of tropical medicine with an emphasis on the practical aspects of problem-solving in the tropics. It is a practical companion for the increasing number of medical students and junior doctors who have the opportunity to practice medicine in the tropics. This edition includes more case histories and self assessment questions that put the subject into a clinical, problem-based context. For many, the limited laboratory backup and choice of effective treatments places a greater burden on their clinical common sense than might otherwise be the case. This book tells you what the effective doctor would do when confronted by an ill patient. It presents a concise account of the conditions that cause serious tropical disease and concentrates on those conditions that are treatable.

Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können. Die Autoren möchten nochmals allen danken, die ihnen bei der Bearbeitung dieser Auf lage behilflich waren, und die es ihnen durch ihre Kommentare und ihre Kritik ermöglicht haben, die in 2jährigen Abständen erscheinenden Revisionen dieses Buches auf dem neu esten Stand zu halten.
