Text: 
A re-emerging of certain infectious diseases in Greece is evident the last four years. Diseases from the past and diseases that were considered to be under control are once again a major health problem in our country and in that way they may present a possible burden for Europe through the migration of hosts and populations. Recent examples include Malaria, West Nile virus and Tuberculosis.
Aim of this workshop is to present the epidemiological patterns of these re-emerging infectious diseases and discuss the clinical data of patients that were diagnosed with them the previous years. Though them the crucial elements to early and proper diagnosis is assessed and the role of primary care in both prevention and treatment of such communicable diseases is delineated.
