Travel-related infections.
Emerg Med Clin North Am. 2008 May; 26(2):499-516, x.EM

Abstract

Infections in travelers returning from international destinations are a common problem for emergency physicians. A careful travel history can help to distinguish the traveler's risk of having contracted an exotic infection, including malaria, dengue fever, and typhoid fever. The most common travel-related infection is traveler's diarrhea. A discussion of typical and rare conditions is provided, grouped by the three most common chief complaints of fever, diarrhea, and rash.
