In 1967, The Tropical Disease Center, St. Clare's Hospital, New York City, began the sponsorship of a series of symposia on clinical tropical medicine. Three symposia have been given: on 27 May 1967 (on schistosomiasis); on 17 October 1967 (on American contributions in the history of tropical medicine); and on May 1968 (on hepatitis in the tropics). The papers presented by invited speakers at these symposia were published in the in the numbers for March and June 1968, and for February 1969. This book collates and reprints these papers; its preface states that the symposia will continue and that other volumes will follow.

Each symposium has an introduction by Dr. Kenneth M. Cahill, Director of the Tropical Disease Center, organizer of the symposia, and Editor of the volume. There follow short review articles pertinent to the subject of each symposium.Four of the six articles in that on schistosomiasis, and three of the six articles in that on hepatitis are followed by brief, formal discussions by invited speakers.
