The book is divided into six parts. The first part, of eleven pages, discusses parasitism in general; the main part, of nearly 200 pages, takes up the protozoa, the worms and the arthropods; the third part presents an index to parasites infesting the different parts of the body, such as the muscle, the blood, the skin and the intestinal canal. The remainder of the book is devoted to a chronologic list of literature on
