DescriptionPublished by GIDEON Informatics
Infectious Diseases of the United Kingdom is one in a series of GIDEON ebooks which summarize the status of individual infectious diseases, in every country of the world. Data are based on the GIDEON web application (www.gideononline.com) 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 section is divided into four sections:
1. Descriptive epidemiology
2. Summary of clinical features
3. Status of the disease in the United Kingdom
There are 347 generic infectious diseases in the world today. 199 of these are endemic, or potentially endemic, to the United Kingdom. A number of other diseases are not relevant to the United Kingdom and have not been included in this book.
The United Kingdom disease notes include separate sections on Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Ireland and Northern Ireland, and Scotland.
In addition to endemic diseases, all published data regarding imported diseases and infection among expatriates from the United Kingdom are included.
