"Schistosomes and schistosomiasis in South Asia" is an up-to-date and concise book on schistosomiasis. This book has twelve chapters including chapters on Taxonomy, Morphological considerations of Schistosoma spp., species of snails involved in schistosomiasis, prevalence of disease, immunological studies, disease manifestation and pathology, parasitological diagnosis, chemotherapy, prevention and control of disease, animal model studies for various species of Schistosomes.

The book includes data not only on schistosomiasis in animals but also all the details of schistosomiasis in humans reported from the continent.

This book stands out by the fact that it is written by an expert who is known for his extensive contribution and studies in schistosomiasis in animals. Professor Agrawal has taken this opportunity to share his experience in the study of schistosomiasis and presented it in this book. The laboratory diagnosis is extensively covered and so is the chemotherapy.

The book is a must for all the veterinarians, clinicians, academicians and research workers actively involved in the field of schistosomiasis. It is a single source of information on the disease. This book could be further enhanced by incorporating newer molecular methods being evaluated and used in the epidemiology and diagnosis of schistosomiasis both in humans and animals.

Note: Publishers, who wish to send their books for parasitic diseases, may please correspond with the editor at [email protected] along with two hard copies of the book to be reviewed.
