This book provides a comprehensive reference and diagnostic aid to the practicing pathologist or infectious disease specialist encountering a parasite in an examined tissue sample. 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. This second edition includes molecular biology and immunologic aspects, and a more in-depth discussion of syndromes more prevalent due to increased world travel, immigration and the AIDS epidemic.

Yezid Gutierrez is at Case Western Reserve University.Review:
"The first edition of this book established a new category of text: a single-suthor complete reference atlas of the microscopic appearance of parasites in human tissues.... An exceptionally successful endeavor.... this new edition has excellent figures and an expanded text.... wealth of detail
and the capillary treatment of the subject matter found in Gutierrez's volume." --Doody's
Reviews of the First Edition "This is an excellent book for pathologists, clinicians, and parasitologists interested in the pathology of parasitic infections. The text is well written and clearly organized. The reader is not only presented with clear descriptions but with a useful perspective
of the relationships between organisms."--Journal of Parasitology
"There is no similarly up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the pathology of parasitic infections in print, and Dr. gutierrez's book thus serves as a needed reference for the diagnosis of even the most exotic parasitic disease."--Human Pathology
"...[Diagnosic Pathology of Parasitic Infections with Clinical Correlations] is a truly wonderful volume destined to become a classic for pathologists and parasitologists alike."--Modern Pathology
"This textbook provides a splendid overview of the morphology, pathogenesis, pathological appearance, and clinical features of parasitic infestations. This book is of value in both increasing one's understanding of how parasites cause disease, as well as aiding in the laboratory diagnosis of
these diseases." -- Family Medicine and International Health newsletter, Winter 2000, No. 4
