Arthropod borne diseases cause enormous morbidity and mortality in most countries, mostly in those situated in tropical areas, but also in temperate regions. This book provides organized information on all arthropod related diseases, to prevent suffering and deaths, for medical students and professionals. Since arthropod borne diseases are present in many regions of the world and can even surprise professionals and lays in non-endemic regions, like malaria in UK and Canada, the author and its many expert collaborators are sure that it will be essential in all hospitals, clinics and medical libraries around the world. As arthropod borne diseases of domesticated animals are very numerous and in some cases related to human diseases, they are also included in the book.

In recent years there has been growing international focus on the importance of emerging and re-emerging arthropod-borne diseases in both human and veterinary medicine. Increasingly these diseases are being diagnosed and treated in veterinary practice. In this book the authors first discuss the overall significance of this group of diseases, plus arthropod biology and immunology, and current laboratory diagnostic methods, followed by individual chapters on each disease entity, grouped by causative organism (protozoan, bacterial, viral). Each chapter covers background etiology and epidemiology, including the role of wildlife species and zoonotic effects, pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment. The book is illustrated throughout in color and contains photographs of clinical cases, hematology, cytology and gross and microscopic pathology. In short, the book provides an accessible guide to arthropod-borne infectious disease for veterinarians in practice and training.

In this second edition of Infectious Diseases and Arthropods, Jerome Goddard summarizes the latest thinking about the biological, entomological, and clinical aspects of the major vector-borne diseases around the world. His book covers mosquito-, tick-, and flea-borne diseases, and a variety of other miscellaneous vector-borne diseases, including Chagas' disease, African sleeping sickness, onchocerciasis, scrub typhus, and louse-borne infections. The author provides for each disease a description of the vector involved, notes on its biology and ecology, distribution maps, and general clinical guidelines for treatment and control. Among the diseases fully discussed are malaria, dengue and yellow fevers, lymphatic filariasis, spotted fevers, ehrlichiosis, lyme disease, tularemia, and plague. Other arthropod-caused or related problems-such as myiasis, imaginary insect or mite infestations, and arthropod stings and bites-are also treated. At a time when vector-borne diseases are spreading ever more widely, Infectious Diseases and Arthropods provides physicians, infectious disease specialists, medical entomologists, and public health officials with an up-to-date, readily accessible, gold-standard reference source.
