Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 063206496X, Paperback)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.
