Abstract

This small volume is intended by the authors to be a “completely practical” aid to the laboratory diagnosis of intestinal parasitic infections. This is accomplished by means of a certain amount of textual material but primarily by an original collection of 232 color photomicrographs of the diagnostic stages of intestinal parasites.

The book, after a short foreword by E. C. Faust, Ph.D., is divided into five chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 (Introduction and Laboratory Methods) are entirely textual in nature whereas the remainder (The Intestinal Protozoa, The Intestinal Helminths, and Confusing Objects Found in Feces), although presenting some general information concerning the individual parasites grouped in the chapter headings, are primarily a detailed description of the diagnostic stages presented in the collection of color photomicrographs.

In Chapter 1 (Introduction), the authors present the case for accurate and careful diagnostic work in clinical parasitology and describe the evolution and use of the Atlas.
