Medical Parasitology, 2009 Edition


Abhay R. SatoskarGary Simon 


Infections caused by parasites are still a major global health problem. Although parasitic infections are responsible for a significant morbidity and mortality in the developing countries, they are also prevalent in the developed countries. Early diagnosis and treatment of a parasitic infection is not only critical for preventing morbidity and mortality individually but also for reducing the risk of spread of infection in the community. This concise book gives an overview of critical facts for clinical and laboratory diagnosis, treatment and prevention of parasitic diseases which are common in humans and which are most likely to be encountered in a clinical practice. This book is a perfect companion for primary care physicians, residents, nurse practitioners, medical students, paramedics, other public health care personnel and as well as travelers.
