This small book is intended for the practicing physician in the temperate climate of North America. It briefly reviews the parasites which are commonly encountered in that area, giving necessary information concerning the diagnosis and treatment. There are good sections on amebiasis, malaria, pinworms, trichinosis, hookworm, hydatid disease and lice and fleas, with lesser paragraphs on other infestations. Attention is paid to certain of the tropical parasites which might be imported from warmer climates. The book is well illustrated with drawings and photographs. It should serve a useful purpose.
