Following a chapter on the history of tropical medicine, the chapters are presented in sections covering underlying factors in tropical medicine such as primary care, epidemiology, traditional medicine, the economics and financing of disease control, and ethical considerations; symptoms and signs and the general approach to the patient; system- oriented disease; specialties in the tropics, including pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics, radiology and imaging services, oral health, and travel health; environmental/genetic disorders; viral infections; rickettsial infections; bacterial infections; mycotic infections; protozoan infections; helminthic infections; and ectoparasites
, meaning they are blood-sucking creatures, living in the fur of bats, so they are like little vampires.
