Delivering the facts to your fingertips, the Oxford Handbook of Tropical Medicine provides an accessible and comprehensive, signs-and-symptoms-based source of information on medical problems commonly seen in the tropics. A handy guide which can fit in the coat pocket and be used easily at the bedside, it 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. Medical conditions are ordered by system except for the five major tropical conditions - malaria, HIV/STIs, tuberculosis, diarrhoeal diseases, and acute respiratory infections - and fevers. In this new edition the sections on malaria, cardiology, chest medicine, gastroenterology, mental health and dermatology have undergone major revision, and there is new material on altitude sickness, heat stroke, avian flu and fuller poisoning. There is a greater emphasis on pediatric medicine and public health throughout, and new illustrations and photographs have been included to aid with diagnosis. Small enough to throw in your rucksack, this unique handbook is the ultimate quick reference guide for all those working in the tropics.

`Review from previous edition The handbook delivers the facts to your fingertips... if I had 425g of luggage allowance to spare I would throw it in my rucksack!'
S B Welby in Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology
`A strong point of the handbook is its range of practical protocols developed by the WHO. These allow a structured approach to patient care and can be adapted to national policies and local conditions, used for easy reference, and disseminated appropriately.'
John Hartley, University College London Hospital
`This is an invaluable resource... this book will answer all of your questions about tropical medicine in a concise manner and suggest a plain and easy to follow treatment plan.'
Reviewer on Amazon
`... is an excellent resource for those working in low-resource circumstances. ... it attempts to provide common sense, rational and relevant information and advice (...)for those working within the tropics and in resource-poor settings, it is unique, practical and excellent resource and can
be thoroughly recommended.'
Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy 2005
`The pocket sized format, with robust plasticized cover ensuring its portability and durability, combined with concise yet highly informative coverage of a vast number of topics will ensure the continued success of the second edition of this popular handbook... I have no reservations in
recommending the second edition of the OHTM to both students and practitioners of tropical medicine. Whether working in the tropics or in resource-rich settings, this handbook will certainly prove its worth.'
Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 2005
`This is a well-written, reasonably comprehensive handbook of clinical tropical medicine that will be very useful for the practitioner in an isolated setting.'
