Parasitic Infections

All 42 parasites described in this chapter have been found in the lungs and associated tissues of humans. Only 2 of these parasites, however, infect human lungs by preference. The remainder are either lost in the wrong tissue or host, in transit to another organ, or disseminated (Table 15-1). Almost half of these parasites do not ordinarily infect people; the vast majority must be identified from the two-dimensional view of histologic examination. Thus, parasites in the lung present a difficult diagnostic problem for the pathologist. A specific diagnosis, when at all possible, requires demonstration of unique morphologic features of the parasite evident in tissue sections.
