Covering all the major tropical diseases that present a health risk to travelers, this book is an invaluable resource for all practitioners who encounter the post travel patient.

With emphasis on clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment, this is the first book to summarize the knowledge of post-travel presentations in the otherwise non-immune and non-endemic population and will aid clinicians to evaluate travelers’ symptoms.

The book is divided into three parts. The first is an overview of key aspects of travel medicine; the second contains a detailed discussion of multiple viral, bacterial and parasitic infections. The third part provides a syndromic approach to patients with common travel complaints such as diarrhea, fever and respiratory infections. It also includes useful appendices with lists of anti-parasitic drugs and available diagnostic tests
