abstract

  • Parasites in the returned traveler can present in any organ system and at time periods quite distant from the activity or geographic exposure that created the risk for infection. All clinicians need to be aware that the most efficient approach to these unusual diseases starts with taking a travel history. The exciting challenge to the diagnostician and the laboratorian is to be able to respond to these clinical demands.
