Summary: Rapid increases in worldwide travel mean that haematologists need to keep up to date with tropical diseases that can cause haematological abnormalities. This chapter covers tropical diseases associated with organisms in the blood or bone marrow (e.g. malaria, filariasis, sleeping sickness, Chagas disease, leishmaniasis) and diseases which alter the blood count or coagulation systems. This chapter not only describes the haematological abnormalities associated with these conditions but also provides an overview of disease epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and the haematological complications of treatment.
