Abstract

Here, we review the common presentations and pitfalls in diagnosing tropical skin infections. We highlight some of the features in the history and examination that are key to reaching the final diagnosis. We focus on common and important conditions in greater depth, and present diagnostic algorithms for the major presenting syndromes, including ulcers and weeping spots, patches and plaques, papules and nodules.
