This book provides the clinician with focused discussions of the fundamental biology and clinical management of selected parasitic diseases, written by laboratory and clinical investigators. The pathophysiology and the diagnosis and treatment of selected parasitic diseases are critically examined, with emphasis on those diseases of increased importance due to their frequent occurrence in AIDS patients. Recent advances in the biology and clinical management of specific organisms are linked to the diseases they cause. The basic biological issues which will determine the pace and course of future advances in the field are also discussed
