This compact, up-to-date guide book is now entering its third edition as the
foremost text on parasitology. With over 350 illustrations, Parasitic Diseases,
Third Edition provides clear, comprehensive information of interest to both
practicing clinicians as well as medical and graduate students. The biology of
parasites and their pathological consequences are dealt with chapter by chapter,
divided according to the type of parasite, e.g. nematodes, cestoidea, protozoa.
Each chapter identifies the individual parasites, recommends treatment and
suggests approaches to patient management. Parasitic Diseases will broaden the
reader's understanding of medical parasitology by stressing disease, host
response, and both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.
