Why would a substantial scholarly work devoted solely to trachoma be published in Australia? For two good reasons: firstly, trachoma, a disease of poverty and poor countries, is still found in Australia. Secondly, it is written by a world renowned trachoma expert, the University of Melbourne’s Professor Hugh Taylor.
