Diagnostic Pathology of Parasitic Infections with Clinical Correlations

Second Edition

Yezid Gutierrez

This title provides a comprehensive reference and diagnostic aid to the practicing pathologist or infectious disease specialist encountering parasites in examined tissue samples. Organized by phylogenetic group, the text facilitates diagnosis by discussing common characteristics and patterns of different parasites, and misleading artifacts that resemble parasites in tissue. The first edition was published by Lea & Febiger, c. 1990. The most significant changes to this edition are the inclusion of molecular biology and immunological aspects, and a more in-depth discussion of syndromes more prevalent due to increased world travel, immigration and the AIDS epidemic. A color plate section has bee added with 117 color photos.
