Monday, September 22, 2014
Dr. Peter Hotez is quoted in a Lancet article regarding neglected tropical diseases.
"Recognition of unusual infections is also a problem in the USA, confirmsPeter Hotez (National School ofTropical Medicine [NSTM], Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA). “From my point of view the problem is not so much rare or imported diseases but neglected tropical diseases that are relatively common in Texas and the US Gulf Coast but that many physicians here fail to recognise”, he explains. Chagas disease is a prime example."
