At first sight this seems a question with an obvious response and not one that requires debate in the editorial columns of a tropical medicine journal. However, the answer may be more complex than appears at first sight and perhaps it may therefore benefit from a more detailed exploration. The obvious response is that the discipline of âTropical Medicineâ refers to the practice of medicine in the tropics. But does it refer to all medical practice that takes place within the Tropics, does it refer to the practice of medicine within resource poor settings or does it refer to the diagnosis and treatment of infectious and parasitic diseases found in a tropical environment? There is no standard definition of Tropical Medicine.
