From the Back Cover:

Most parasitic diseases occur in tropical and subtropical regions, but some, such as toxoplasmosis and cryptosporidiosis, are endemic or rapidly emerging elsewhere, including the United States and Europe. Diagnosis is often difficult as the clinical manifestations of many parasitic lung diseases are similar to those of common respiratory illnesses and routine tests can fail to detect the infections. The relative rarity of these diseases increases the challenges faced by clinicians and pathologists.
