Markell and Voge's Medical Parasitology
Elsevier Health Sciences, 2006 - Medical - 463 pages
With a new two-color design, Markell and Voge's Medical Parasitology has an updated and fresh look that highlights the comprehensive material students have trusted for over 40 years. Completely redrawn line drawings and improved halftones provide visual examples related directly to the textual material. The content explores the etiologic agents of human disease belonging to the animal kingdom: protozoa, helminths (worms), and arthropods (insects and spiders), all of which are a significant cause of, or link to illness encountered both in tropical and temperate environments. In addition to providing detailed descriptions of these agents, this text deals with the clinical diseases they cause, their modes of acquisition, transmission and epidemiology, and their pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Review: Markell and Voge's Medical ParasitologyUser Review - Angie - Goodreads
The presentation of the organisms is concise and intended for med students and physicians. I liked the book format but would have liked more color plates to help with identifying the little buggers under light microscopy. Read full review
