The Human Parasitic Diseases Sourcebook provides practical information on diagnosis and treatment of over 100 parasitic diseases, some never collected together into a single source. This is the first practical guide on parasitology for clinicians, health workers, and students. This clinically oriented text provides tools to aid in diagnosing and treating parasitic diseases. As regional parasites rapidly globalize, sharpened knowledge and skills in this field are essential. This book covers well-known parasitic diseases such as malaria and pinworm, but also covers new, emerging parasitic diseases. This text is ideal for physicians and public health workers worldwide as well as students in health professions.
