The practice of tropical medicine in London tends to pose rather a different proposition from what it is popularly supposed to be. It does not take long for the consultant to recognise that the tropical side is just but one facet of the composite picture. He soon finds himself in a morass of differential diagnosis when faced with the gamut of those diseases which man is heir to. For, wedged in between what is thought to be malaria, amoebic dysentery, sprue and helminthic infections—or what have you—there are possibilities of a more mundane nature which have to be considered.
