Abstract

In recent years an increasing number of physicians want to spend part of their medical training in health facilities in developing countries. Working in these areas requires good clinical skills, particularly where diagnostic resources are limited. Trainees will attend patients with many different parasitic diseases such as malaria and soil transmitted helminthic infections. The aim of this work is to provide basic concepts of epidemiology, clinical characteristics, diagnosis and treatment of the principal parasitic diseases that could occur in a rural health post in the tropics.
