Cases in Human Parasitology

Cases in Human Parasitology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Over 60 case studies focusing on intestinal protozoa, blood and tissue protozoa, cestodes, trematodes, and intestinal nematodes, as well as blood and tissue nematodes - Concise cases begin with patient history and symptoms, relevant clinical findings and laboratory data, and in most cases relevant four-color images; proceed with discussion questions; and conclude with answers to the questions - Challenging cases throughout; final section presents students with unusual patient histories and symptoms - Reinforces material which is covered in a laboratory or clinical setting

Book News Annotation:

Heelan (microbiology, Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island) presents 62 cases in which parasites are suspected of causing an infectious disease. In addition to infections caused by well-known parasites, new, and emerging parasites, the book includes cases infrequently seen in this country. Each case opens with a patient history and description of symptoms, and most are accompanied by a color image of the parasite. Reverse pages explain issues of diagnosis, epidemiology, prevention, and treatment.
