Men are being returned to the United States in increasing numbers from regions where they have been exposed to tropical diseases, hitherto largely unfamiliar to most physicians in this quarter of the world. Many of these diseases have already made their appearance in this country. Some, though not primarily classed as arthritides, present joint phenomena as part of their symptomatology. Many others have painful manifestations in various parts of the body, including the limbs. A description of such phenomena as they occur in tropical diseases may be of aid in diagnosis and in their differentiation from the better known diseases
