"The Oxford Handbook of Tropical Medicine" provides clear and concise coverage for practitioners and students in the tropics. Medical conditions are ordered by system except for the five major tropical conditions - malaria, HIV/STDs, tuberculosis, diarrhoeal diseases, and acute respiratory infections - and fevers. The book 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. In this new edition the cardiology, chest medicine, renal, and endocrinology sections have undergone major revision, and there is new material on mental health and ophthalmology. Oxford University Press would like to thank Tropical Health Technology for supplying the images for the colour plate section of this book.
