A comprehensive, and profusely illustrated description of the common and uncommon images which will be found in a wide range of tropical diseases, correlated with the clinical and laboratory findings, and the epidemiology and pathology. Each chapter is an in-depth study with many images at all stages of the infections. Volume 1 includes amebiasis, schistosomiasis, hydatid disease, Chagas' disease, tuberculosis, the mycoses, taeniasis (tapeworms) and cystircercosis, and also AIDS as seen in the tropics. This is a unique book which will be of immense value, not only to all those in the practice of tropical medicine, but also to help recognition and understanding of the unusual illnesses which may be seen in travellers and immigrants.
