This book is intended for medical students and physicians. It is written in a clear concise manner, with emphasis placed on the medical aspects of parasitic diseases, while only such zoological data are presented as the author believes will make a contribution to a specific diagnosis of the disease under consideration, and to an understanding of its pathogenesis and epidemiology.

The animal parasites are grouped according to their phylogenetic relationships under the section headings of Protozoa, Helminths and Arthropods. Information is provided on the life cycle and morphology of the agent or vector, and on the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the disease caused.

A new section entitled “Synopsis” appears in this second edition. Written partially in tabular form, it summarizes basic and fundamental points necessary for an understanding of parasitism and parasitic diseases, including resistance and immunity, and hematology in parasitic diseases.

The section on treatment has been revised considerably to bring it up to date.
