Conference paper


In this chapter some common parasitic diseases of the colorectoanal tract (CRAT) are discussed. The term “parasite” is strictly used for protozoa (unicellular organisms) and metazoa (helminths) [4]. There are special chapters in this book for infections caused by bacteria, fungi, and viruses (Chaps. 4, 28, 29).
