Essentials of Medical Parasitology

by Apurba S Sastry, Sandhya Bhat

This book focuses on the essentials of medical parasitology. Medical parasitology is an interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of animal parasites which infect and produce diseases in human beings. This book comprised of 4 sections, which include general introduction of parasitology, protozoology, helminthology, and miscellaneous, which are further divided into 16 chapters. Day-to-day developments in the field of parasitology and the unavailability of a standard textbook fulfilling the needs and expectation of the students motivated us to write a book in an updated format with recent epidemiological data, laboratory techniques, treatment strategies, etc. in such a way that students can grasp it easily. The whole content of the book has been arranged in a bulleted format and use of subheads has increased the readability. Expected questions including MCQs have been added at the end of each chapter which will help to reinforce and understand the related topic in a better way. Life cycles are drawn in lucid and easy-to-grasp manner, exactly according to the text. Real microscopic images of parasites and specimens from various sources are being incorporated to correlate their impressions with the related parasitic diseases. Laboratory diagnosis and treatment boxes are introduced as a different entity for a quick review for students as well as for physicians. The book is found to be useful for students as well as for the faculty.
