In this age of rapid electronic access to scientific papers and erudite surgical opinion one has to ask whether there is still a place for a comprehensive surgical textbook that takes several years to compile and risks losing its immediacy. The success of the 25th edition of Bailey & Love together with the numerous positive communications we have received since its publication suggest that the answer is very much in the affirmative. However, it is essential that in producing further editions cognisance is taken of what the “customer” wants. Consequently before preparing the 26th edition of this venerable text we conducted considerable market research as to what had succeeded in the previous edition, what had been omitted and how we could improve content and presentation. Readers from a range of backgrounds from undergraduates to hard bitten and, dare we say, cynical senior consultants were asked for their opinion. Their musings and frank criticisms were all taken very seriously and many of their suggestions were adopted for this edition. A few chapters were removed or consolidated into others; new chapters have been added focusing on the important topics of patient safety, day case surgery and bariatric surgery. All existing chapters have been radically revised and have been thoroughly brought up to date. We have attempted to ensure more conformity with regard to illustrations; however, we have kept faith with Hamilton Bailey and McNeil Love’s original concept of ensuring clinical photographs are liberally used to not only enhance the text but more importantly illuminate a clinical point. Many new photographs have been introduced, some of which have been provided by our readers, which is very much a Bailey & Love tradition. Although we have been ruthless in removing old material we make no excuse for retaining the odd original pen drawing taken from the first few editions. This is not just for nostalgia’s sake but because they illustrate a pertinent point not easily captured by a modern photograph. Another tradition beloved of readers has of course been the autobiographical notes. These have all been painstakingly researched and added to by Pradip Datta. We recognise that despite very careful attention to detail by our authors there may be an occasional error in the text that we and our proof readers have failed to spot. It would not be surprising in a text of this length. We apologise in advance for any errors and thank our eagle-eyed readers whom we know from experience will let us know of any that they find. This is a Bailey & Love tradition and we value all contributions that can improve accuracy. Several editions ago we introduced the concept of learning objectives and summary boxes in order to help examination candidates in their revision. The feedback regarding these innovations was extremely positive and we have attempted to ensure that these are comprehensive, standardised and liberally dispersed through the text. The authors of the chapters have been carefully chosen not just for their undoubted experience and expertise in their specialty but also their ability to write both accurately and succinctly. Writing is a skill honed by practice; it is a labour of love and takes time and patience to perfect. The best authors are like gifted musicians who, after numerous rehearsals, are able to deliver a perfect recital. It is our belief that our contributors have done just this and we the editors have attempted wherever possible to ensure there is a rhythm and harmony flowing through the pages. However, at the end of the day we appreciate it will be up to the audience to decide how successful we and our authors have been in this endeavour. It has been a pleasure and privilege to edit this historic textbook beloved of so many students and trainees through the decades. However, we are conscious that previous reputation counts for very little unless the present product meets expectations and is relevant to the present era. This thought has always been in our minds when preparing the content of the 26th edition. We very much hope it fits the bill and fulfils your requirements whether you, the reader, are studying for an exam, checking on an area of practice that you may be unfamiliar with or just refreshing your memory about some forgotten fact or biographical detail.

This book provides up-to-date information on lymphatic filariasis supported with abundant images, tables and algorithms. It is a first such monograph on a disease that has varied presentations which are complete clinical entities, such as chyluria, hydrocele, elephantiasis, etc. This book consists of three parts, parasitology, acute clinical manifestations and chronic presentations of the disease. Approximately 120 million people are infected with lymphatic filariasis in tropical and subtropical countries. About a third of these suffer clinical consequences of this infection, and many are seriously disfigured. India, Indonesia and Nigeria are the most endemic countries in the world. In spite of Global Control Program of WHO, filariasis continues to be a significant medical challenge and current efforts underway will take a long time to bring it under control. Lymphatic Filariasis is meant for general surgeons, physicians, urologists and plastic surgeons, including the postgraduate students. Useful for epidemiologists, internists, and those involved in filariasis prevention programs.
