As editor, Dr. Sun is one of the most distinguished clinical parasitologists in the world. Since all contributors are from the respective endemic area of the disease that they describe, this volume provides firsthand information that is not always obtainable from a textbook. All chapters feature extremely comprehensive coverage in basic biology and biochemistry of the parasite; clinical symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease; and current advances in immunology, cytogenetics, and molecular biology in relation to the parasite and disease. The references cited are exhaustive and current.
