Abstract

This is an unusual little paperback book consisting of the presentation of the protocols of 47 cases of parasitic infection. Each protocol includes the essential history, physical and laboratory findings, and clinical course. There follow several multiple choice questions bearing on the diagnosis and treatment. The answers are then given together with the reasons therefor. Finally there is a brief description of the parasitic agent together with epidemiology, diagnosis, symptomatology, treatment, and prevention. For some parasites a few references are cited.

The author has used the method described above in his teaching of clinical parasitology. The method is commonly used in the teaching of other fields in clinical medicine but not so commonly in clinical parasitology. The presentation of a case history followed by multiple choice questions is on the other hand commonly used in final examinations in clinical parasitology.

The author has prepared his protocols well, evidently collecting those of actual cases.
