IAP Textbook of Tropical Diseases

The aim of this Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) textbook is to focus on the tropical disease. Tropical diseases are those diseases that are prevalent in or unique to tropical and subtropical regions. The diseases are less prevalent in temperate climates, due in part to the occurrence of a cold season, which controls the insect population by forcing hibernation. This book has been made as comprehensive as possible with 14 sections which deals with different aspects of tropical diseases with special reference to India. It covers all the important topics, arranging them systematically starting from epidemiology, nutritional disorders, neonatal problems, infectious diseases, noncommunicable diseases, pediatric subspecialties, accident and poisoning, emergencies and intensive care, environmental issues and certain neglected tropical diseases of our country. The book will be equally useful to the practitioners, faculty, and students of pediatrics and will provide a new vision to look at these disorders.
