Tropical diseases found in tropics are mostly contagious and vector borne. Here in the tropics as there is moisture in the air and hot climate sustained for a long time in the year the spread of the pathogens causing the diseases is very much congenial. This hand book written on the treatment of tropical diseases will help the practicing Physicians to choose the most appropriate drug for the treatment. Here therapeutic drugs are highlighted according to their uses. The dominant symptoms, pathogens, area of endemic and epidemic diseases are focussed in coloured world map along with pathogenecity. The generic and brand names of the drugs along with the names of the manufacturing company are mentioned. The adverse effects of the drugs are also discussed.
