Editorial Reviews

`This book is another excellent addition to the Practical Approach series. It is a good laboratory reference manual for use by field and health workers, diagnostic laboratories and researchers in both developing and developed countries and would be useful to students of medical parasitology.'Anne Kaukas, SGM Quarterly, February 1997
