Abstract

The book is written for the medical practitioner and especially to be of help to those who have no laboratory near at which parasitological diagnoses can be made.

The material is divided into 22 chapters. The first four chapters are concerned with a general statement, the microscope, examination of material (principally protozoan), and general remarks on parasitology.

Chapter V discusses spirochetes and illustrates the pattern for presenting the technical information on the parasites, , a general statement, the scientific name, geographical distribution, habitat, morphological characters, life history, pathogenicity, diagnosis, and prevention. Treatment is not discussed.

There are six chapters on the protozoa. Brief descriptions of and have been introduced. A diagram of the life history of the malaria parasite is included, incorporating the new knowledge on the tissue phases.

Chapter XII introduces the helminths. Chapter XIII again considers examination of material, principally helminths, but some reference is made to the previous chapter dealing with examining of material for protozoa.
