Infectious Diseases

A Geographic Guide

Second Edition

The second edition of this concise and practical guide describes infections in geographical areas and provides information on disease risk, concomitant infections (such as co-prevalence of HIV and tuberculosis) and emerging bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections in a given geographical area of the world

Divided according to United Nations world regions, this book covers the geographic disease profile, presenting symptoms, and incubation periods of infections. Each chapter contains a section on the coverage of the childhood vaccination programs in the countries included in that region. Chapters also include descriptions of infectious disease risk and problems with resistant bacteria in each region

For the clinician, this book provides an aid to generate differential diagnoses by considering the geographical history of their patient alongside the presenting symptoms and duration of illness. For the travel medicine specialist, this book provides information on risks of different diseases at various destinations and is particularly useful in advising long-term travelers
