Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martha Gentry-Nielsen, PhD (Creighton University School of Medicine)
Description: This fifth edition of a textbook on human parasitology could also serve as an excellent reference for physicians. Updated from the 2000 version by the addition of 550 new references, it provides information on the history, life cycle, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the common parasites plaguing humans throughout the world.
Purpose: This book was written to provide clinicians with up-to-date basic information on the parasites of man, including their pathogenic mechanisms, their evasion of host immunity, and their interactions with our current antiparasitic drugs. To this end, the final chapters provide advice on travel medicine, antiparasitic drugs, a diagnostic atlas, and web sites for further study.
Audience: Written primarily for medical students and physicians, this book could be used for parasitology courses aimed at upper level undergraduate and graduate students. However, the relative scarcity of introductory information on the basic structures of parasites and principles of parasitism may require such students to have prior knowledge of host-pathogen interactions, not to mention a medical dictionary.
Features: One of the finest features of this book is its abundance of color photographs depicting the organisms themselves and the patients they have affected, as well as many elegant life cycle illustrations. The use of personal stories and interwoven commentaries on man's contributions to the ecology of parasitic diseases further add to the readability and significance of the book.
Assessment: This is by far the most informative, readable and interesting book on parasitic diseases I have encountered. It has the rare quality of being detailed enough to educate the reader on necessary technicalities while providing the human interest aspects that motivate students to keep reading.
