'''Tropikal tıp''', özellikle [[tropikal]] ve yarı-tropikal bölgelere has olan veya bu bölgelerde yaygın olan veya bu bölgelerde kontrol altında tutulması zor olan [[sağlık]] sorunlarıyla ilgilenen [[tıp]] dalıdır.
Many infections that are classified as "tropical diseases" used to be endemic in countries located in temperate or even cold areas. That was the case for leprosy, cholera, malaria, polio, measles, hookworm infestations, amoebiasis, among others. The disappearance of those diseases from developed countries was primarily caused by improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene. Since climate is not the main reason why those infections remain endemic in tropical areas, there is a trend towards renaming this speciality as "Geographic Medicine".
