n South African Medical Journal - Common Medical Problems in the Tropics, C.R. Schull : book reviews

This book should be viewed in the context of its aims, i.e. as a reference for paramedical health workers in isolated rural areas with limited access to senior advice and even simple investigations. However, it would also be a valuable reference for doctors, particularly those who trained in high-resource settings or who are working outside their area of expertise. This edition is a major re-write by Dr Schull and his wife, who have generously agreed to forego royalties from sales. The book is available through Teaching Aids at Low Cost (TALC), thanks to a grant from the Australian Medical Association of Queensland Foundation.
