Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review is presented of patients, mainly Australians and New Zealanders, who came to Fiji as tourists. One hundred and seven patients were seen in a six-month period in a general practice near Nadi International Airport, and 39 patients were admitted to the medical unit of the nearby Divisional Hospital over a two-year period. Attention is drawn to the need for informed advice to be given to patients about to embark on holidays abroad, and some of the common problems are discussed.
