Abstract

This book is based on the course in parasitology given in the medical school of McGill University. Its contents are deliberately restricted to the needs of the practitioner in the English speaking temperate and subtropical areas with no attempt to supply the larger needs of the parasitologist or laboratory worker.

The section on the last group contains not only insects of medical importance but also venomous arthropods. Detailed descriptions are limited to those parasites which occur in North America and Great Britain. In each of these species a brief summary account is given of the morphology and life cycle of the parasite, various pathologic aspects of the infection, diagnosis, methods of spread and treatment. Some readers will undoubtedly feel that the discussion of some aspects of the subject should have been more adequately treated. Within
