This book is a translation of the original French , published in 1961. As the author, who is Director of Studies, Faculty of Medicine, Montpellier, notes in his introductory remarks, this work was designed to serve as a handbook to accompany a formal lecture series for third-year medical students.

The basic format of the book is that of a combination laboratory manual and synopsis of medically important animal parasites. Each unit of study (, a protozoan parasite, a nematode adult, a trematode egg, a cestode segment, an arthropod head) is presented in two pages. The object of study is described and the student is told what he should see and, frequently, what he should not expect to see. This information is followed by a brief summary of what the student should know. Space is provided for notes and drawings. Outline sketches and maps to be completed by the student are included in most of the exercises.
