Intended as a supplement to textbooks in human parasitology for undergraduate and medical school courses, this book of 62 case studies is also an important educational reference source for health care scientists active in the field of parasitology. The first four sections cover different groups of parasites, including intestinal protozoa; blood and tissue protozoa; cestodes, trematodes, and intestinal nematodes; and blood and tissue nematodes. The last section covers challenging cases and details non—parasitic infections in patients with symptoms closely resembling those of parasitic infections. Each case study opens with a patient history and description of symptoms, and most are accompanied by a color image of the parasite described. Thought—provoking questions are posed, covering everything from diagnosis and the life cycle of the identified parasite to epidemiology and prevention.
