Of all the afflications suffered by today's traveller, acute diarrhoea, often accompanied by low-grade fever, abdominal cramps or vomiting, is probably the most common. It is now well-established that an infective agent is responsible for at least 70% of the cases of diarrhoea experienced by travellers who leave their homeland (usually the industrialized West) and travel to less developed parts of the world. These infections are most commonly acquired through ingestion of contaminated food and water, but may be transmitted by person-to-person contact. Advances in our knowledge of this benign but troublesome syndrome have grown in recent years with the discovery of new emerging pathogens, as well as new preventive and therapeutic measures. This text, which represents a combination of basic science and clinical medicine, is designed to help clinicians, particularly those working the fields of travel medicine, infectious diseases and gastroenterology, to better understand how to prevent and manage diarrhoeal illness in the traveller.
