Diagnosis of parasitic lung diseases is often difficult as their clinical manifestations can mimic common respiratory illnesses and routine tests can fail to detect the infections. Parasitic Diseases of the Lungs is designed as a practical guide for pathologists who encounter parasitic diseases of the lung in their daily routine. The book comprises eight chapters. After discussion of the handling of lung biopsies from patients with suspected parasitic disease, individual chapters focus on Protozoa, Nematoda, Trematoda, and Cestoda. The morphologic patterns associated with various parasitic infections are then analyzed, and differentiation between artifacts and parasites is discussed. The final chapter is devoted to the immunocompromised patient and covers general principles of histologic evaluation, parasites associated with HIV and AIDS, and the features of diffuse alveolar damage.
