This second volume describes a further wide variety of parasitic infections and other diseases,including benign and malignant tumors. Some are widespread, others re- stricted to specific geographical or climatic regions; almost all affect countless patients, some with generalized illnesses, others with limited involvement which may nonetheless be serious for the individual. The book contains numerous images at the important stages of the diseases, with photographs and histopathological sections to help understand the clinical progress, and often the response to treatment. These two volumes will be of great value to all who care for patients with tropical diseases, clinicians as well as radiologists.
