Abstract: 
As international travels have become increasingly common for both business and tourism, physicians are confronted with innumerable travelers suffering from unknown syndromes and infectious diseases, thus it is necessary for physicians to maintain familiarity with current guidelines and recommendations about travel medicine and prevention of related infectious diseases.
Fever, travelers' diarrhea, skin eruptions, respiratory and CNS involvement are diseases seen among travelers on return which make them visit the physicians.
Consultation and a check up prior to traveling with the aim of immunization, recommendations about traveler's diarrhea, malaria and diseases transmitted by blood or sexual contacts are steps that could be taken by the physicians before travel. Knowledge about the epidemiology and etiology of traveler's diseases, destination and immunization status of travelers can prevent complications, morbidity and mortality attributed to infectious diseases in travelers.
