PARASITIC INFECTIONS

++

Parasitic diseases are common and may present clinically in a variety of ways (Table 43–1). Although travel to endemic areas suggests particular infections, many parasites are transmitted through fomites or acquired from contact with human carriers and can occur anywhere. Some of the less common parasitic infections and those seen primarily in the developing world are presented in abbreviated form in Table 43–2.
