Abstract

This guide aims to provide orientation and advice for doctors and health practitioners new to the Top End of the Northern Territory (NT) about a range of locally important conditions that are less frequently encountered in clinical practice in southern parts of Australia.

This guide contains summaries of 50 conditions and includes some clinical scenarios which highlight important local issues. The guide includes specific references to Indigenous people, including case studies, and provides references to culturally specific educational resources.

The guide is split into seven sections:

  • bacterial infections and post streptococcal syndromes
  • viruses, spirochetes, chlamydial and vector borne diseases
  • infestations and fungal infections
  • sexually transmitted infections
  • toxins
  • conditions affecting children
  • other conditions.

Please note that this guide has a clinical focus, and does not provide extensive coverage of a number of issues highly relevant to the health conditions that are included.
