This issue provides in-depth coverage of a wide range of topics in Travel Medicine that are not readily available in standard textbooks. The contributing authors are recognized experts in their fields of infectious diseases, clinical tropical medicine, and travel medicine. Topics covered include new vaccines against yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis, the current prevention of malaria and treatment of common syndromes such as travelers diarrhea and cutaneous infections acquired abroad, including cutaneous leishmaniasis. Other chapters address the pre-travel screening of high-risk travelers, problems associated with airline travel for adults and children, the common issues confronting physicians who work with travelers returning to home abroad to visit friends and relatives, sexual tourism and the interactions between HIV infection and tropical diseases. Authors also address the use of surveillance data obtained in travelers, medical issues associated with extreme travel conditions, the treatment of severe malaria, and the vectors associated with common vector-borne diseases.
