Abstract

Mountain sickness is a common problem upon climbing rapidly to an elevation above 2500 metres. The symptoms are mostly mild, passing within a couple of days. If the symptoms and lack of adaptation to thin air are neglected, the symptoms may quickly become worse, leading to a life-threatening cerebral or pulmonary edema. Every physician providing travel counseling should be aware of this disease and the correct measures for its management.
