Book Description:
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 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 book highlights selective concepts of tropical pediatrics that are of importance to clinicians caring for children and adolescents. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
