Abstract

This short communication attempts to describe aspects of a cholera epidemic in relation to the four traditional pillars of medical ethics described by Beuchamp and Childress[1]: autonomy, beneficience, non-maleficence and justice. While by no means being an exhaustive list of the problems faced in managing cholera, it will hopefully encourage clinicians to momentarily rise up above the chaos of a cholera ward and consider what is happening around them. © 2010 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
