The stated purpose of this book is to provide a practical combination text and laboratory guide, especially for medical students whose time for medical parasitology is usually limited. The position is taken that most medical students are not concerned with classification, zoological details, and elaborate references. Therefore, a standard set of topics for each infection is followed with this in mind: 1) clinical picture, 2) life cycle, 3) diagnosis, 4) treatment, and 5) post-treatment advice. Also, only a few selected references are included at the end of each chapter. The expressed hope is that this purposely limited approach will assist students in answering realistic questions of concern to them.

The unique feature of the book is the presentation of infections according to signs and symptoms referable for the most part to a body region.
