The Tropical Doctor

Someone returning from a trip to a (sub) tropical country may have health problems resulting from their trip or stay abroad. They should see a tropical doctor at the Erasmus MC.

If you are unfortunately ill on your return from a trip to a tropical country or you develop symptoms within 14 days of your return ask your doctor to refer you to the Erasmus MC tropical outpatient clinic.

The tropical outpatient clinic and the Accident and Emergency Department can both assess patients where a tropical disease is suspected.  The diagnosis is usually made within one day and, if appropriate, treatment can be arranged.


Your doctor can contact the tropical diseases clinic to make an appointment at the Erasmus MC directly on: 06 50 03 19 73.

Contact your doctor immediately if you have a high fever or urgent medical problems. He or she can arrange an emergency referral if necessary.
