  • Description
  • Details

Newly revised and updated, this third edition is the ultimate guide to tropical medicine.

Delivering the facts to your fingertips, the “Oxford Handbook of Tropical Medicine” provides an accessible and comprehensive, signs-and-symptoms-based source of information on medical problems commonly seen in the tropics. A handy guide which can fit in the coat pocket and be used easily at the bedside, it has been designed to be as practical as possible with illustrations of blood films and stool smears, which are useful for diagnosis, as well as clinical features, diagnosis, and management.

Medical conditions are ordered by system except for the five major tropical conditions--malaria, HIV/STIs, tuberculosis, diarrhoeal diseases, and acute respiratory infections--and fevers. In this new edition the sections on malaria, cardiology, chest medicine, gastroenterology, mental health and dermatology have undergone major revision, and there is new material on altitude sickness, heat stroke, avian flu and fuller poisoning. There is a greater emphasis on pediatric medicine and public health throughout, and new illustrations and photographs have been included to aid with diagnosis. Small enough to throw in your rucksack, this unique handbook is the ultimate quick reference guide for all those working in the tropics.
