Tropical Dermatology Second Edition 2017
Patients with tropical diseases, however, are presenting to physicians in temperate areas with increasing frequency due to other reasons, such as increased travel to tropical countries for work or pleasure. It is important to note, however, that most physician visits by the returned traveler for mucocutaneous problems are unrelated to the patient’s travel or national origin, but instead are the same conditions seen daily in patients who have never left their
local communities. Therefore, the goal of this Tropical Dermatology Second Edition 2017 is to provide a guide for healthcare workers to the mucocutaneous manifestations of tropical diseases.
To formulate a differential diagnosis, the morphology and distribution pattern of the skin lesions must be
considered given the patient’s symptoms, physical examination, general medical condition and exposure history as well as the vaccination record and current medications. Laboratory and histology results can often be used to reach a diagnosis and help determine the appropriate management.
