Abstract

Historically, tropical diseases have remained a significant threat to military operations in tropical zones, 1-4 especially in the developing country environment, which are often areas characterized by extremes of poverty, environment, endemic disease, and inadequate public health resources. In the past decade, military deployments to war-like areas, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, has seen an increased focus on trauma; however recent literature suggests that tropical diseases remain issues for deployed troops. An overview of tropical infectious diseases of military importance has been published elsewhere.
