This book is written to supply a work devoted entirely to laboratory methods for the diagnosis of diseases caused by protozoan parasites. Laboratory diagnosis of intestinal parasitic infections can be carried out by detection and identification of the parasites or their particular stages (ova/egg, cyst, larva or trophozoite) in the stool specimen.

Microscopy still remains the gold standard procedure for the diagnosis of many protozoan infections in animals, but the specific identification requires skilled and experienced personnel. Immunoassays, detecting antibodies or specific protozoan antigens, have been developed but often lack sensitivity and specificity due to close relationship.

A diagnosis of a protozoan infection begins with identifying the symptoms most commonly associated with the condition.

These symptoms depend on the type of single-celled parasite, referred to as a protozoa, involved and where in the body it is multiplying. Giardia lamblia: Life Cycle, Diseases and laboratory diagnosis.
