Infectious Diseases of Thailand

Infectious Diseases of Thailand is one in a series of GIDEON ebooks which explore all individual infectious diseases, drugs, vaccines, outbreaks, surveys and pathogens in every country of the world. Data are based on the GIDEON web application ( which relies on standard text books, peer-review journals, Health Ministry reports and ProMED, supplemented by an ongoing search of the medical literature.

Chapters are arranged alphabetically, by disease name. Each chapter is divided into four sections:

1. Descriptive epidemiology
2. Status of the disease in Thailand
3. References

A chapter outlining the routine vaccination schedule of Thailand follows the diseases chapters.

There are 357 generic infectious diseases in the world today. 245 of these are endemic, or potentially endemic, to Thailand. A number of other diseases are not relevant to Thailand and have not been included in this book.
