Author information

Infectious Disease Clinic, Dermatology Department, Kings College Hospital NHS Trust, London, UK.


Scabies and pyodermas are two of the commonest skin infections in tropical settings. They affect large numbers of people, particularly children, and account for a large burden of disease for peripheral health care teams. Despite this there have been significant advances in our knowledge of these diseases, their impact and their management. However there is a need to evaluate these developments in this specific setting, tropical health and in the context of communities with limited resources. This section will describe these advances and the challenges that remain.
