Editorial Reviews

"This textbook provides a splendid overview of the morphology, pathogenesis, pathological appearance, and clinical features of parasitic infestations. This book is of value in both increasing one's understanding of how parasites cause disease, as well as aiding in the laboratory diagnosis ofthese diseases." -- Family Medicine and International Health newsletter, Winter 2000, No. 4
