Welcome to INTROPICON 2017

It gives us the greatest of pleasure to welcome you all for this International Tropical Neurology Conference – INTROPICON 2017. This is not the first international conference on tropical Neurology. World-renowned delegates have held such meetings in the latter part of the 20th century but for some reason unclear, there has not been such a conference since 1996.

It is not as if tropical diseases had been cleared or had become rarer. In fact that was the period when the major scourge of HIV disease moved into the tropical world and started afflicting significant parts of the population in Asia and particularly Africa. And though of course for all of us infectious diseases form the bulk of tropical medicine from cerebral malaria, tuberculosis, Japanese B, neurocysticercosis, Polio etc. to the newer entrants Chikungunya, Ebola, and Zika this group does not really encompass all tropical medicine. We have realized that vascular disease presentations, demyelination diseases, toxic disorders of nervous system, dementia, neuropathies and myoneural junction disorders and even hereditary diseases of the nervous system have their own distinctive flavors and differences in tropical lands and become part of tropical diseases of the nervous system.

It is thus with a sense of pride that we host a second reincarnation of the International Tropical Neurology conference - INTROPICON 2017. We all wish to welcome you here in India primarily to refresh our minds on newer aspects of tropical medicine and secondarily to meet colleagues from far and near and make new friends and forge lasting bonds. Thirdly we welcome you to see our wonderful country. All visitors here at the conference have usually been impressed with our hospitality and we intend to preserve that high opinion among you all.

Of course, you must have heard several good things about our Indian heritage and we invite you to spend some time seeing a part of it. A travel section at the meeting will help you in as many ways it can.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to INTROPICON 2017 and to India in its 70th year post-independence.

We, the members of the organizing committee, wish to thank you all for your gracious presence. We hope you will remember this occasion for many many years with pleasure.

Welcome to INTROPICON 2017 and to India!
