The book is divided into two parts. The first deals on 12 pp. briefly with the general biology, epidemiology, and pathology of helminths, and in a somewhat more detailed way with general diagnostic (15 pp.) and therapeutic (40 pp.) procedures. The second part describes those trematodes (27 pp.), cestodes (29 pp.), nematodes (54 pp.), acanthocephala (3 pp.), and gordiacea (2 pp.) that have been found as parasites of man in Europe. The more important parasites are treated according to the following scheme: Distribution, morphology, development, biology, epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, prognosis, prophylaxis, and therapy. The book contains 35 illustrations, mainly good original photographs. It is concluded by a fairly brief bibliography and a subject index.

The book is written mainly for the physician. In view of the European post-war increase in helminthic infections, it certainly will be of value to the European clinician, especially in drawing his attention to the possibility of the occurrence of rarer parasites.
