Introduction
Parasitic diseases continue to cause significant morbidity and mortality
in the world, particularly in lessdeveloped tropical and subtropical
countries. In the United States, indigenous malaria was eradicated
long ago, and indigenous nematode infections such as ascariasis,
trichuriasis, and hookworm infection have markedly decreased in both
incidence and severity. Some other infections are increasing. Giardiasis
is a frequent public health problem, with outbreaks related to water
supplies and day care centers for children. Giardia, ameba, and
Cryptosporidium infections are increasing in male homosexuals.
Pneumocystis carinii, Cryptosporidium species, Strongyloides
stercoralis, and Toxoplasma gondii are increasingly important causes
of serious infections in immunoco-mpromised hosts, especially those
with AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome).
In addition to infections which are indigenous to the United States,
a wide variety of infections may be seen in U.S. citizens who have
traveled or worked in foreign countries or in foreign nationals who
are visiting or now residing in the United States. Many of these
people, such as persons infected with malaria, may be asymptomatic
for months or years before disease develops or relapses occur. Some
people are recognized as having malaria only when a recipient of
their blood develops transfusion-induced malaria or when a baby
develops congenital malaria. Other diseases such as echinococcosis
may require years before becoming clinically evident.
