Tropical medicine is a branch of medicine focusing on disorders usually found in subtropical and tropical areas of the world. Tropical pediatrics is a branch of tropical medicine focusing on children and adolescents in these areas. The current process of global warming and the widespread issue of international travel are bringing these conditions to many places of the globe. This third edition of Tropical pediatrics highlights selective concepts of tropical pediatrics that are of importance to clinicians caring for children and adolescents. This book is dedicated to clinicians around the world who care for these precious patients growing up in often remote corners of globe. It should be remembered that sometimes these issues become important to civilized corners of the world as well. Issues of clean water for the world’s population are also considered.
