NEW  CP106  Case Based Stool and Blood Parasitology

Monday, October 14
2:00–4:00 PM

Medical Knowledge Patient Care

Diagnosis of parasites from stool and blood specimens represents a challenging and critical aspect of medicine today. Parasitic diseases such as malaria and strongyloidiasis can be rapidly fatal, and pathologists are often called upon to make the final parasite identification. Unfortunately, clinical parasitology is often overlooked or underrepresented during residency training. Experience an interactive case-based approach to discuss the key aspects of blood and stool parasite identification, including classic morphologic features as well as newer enzyme, antigen, and molecular techniques. The pathogen in each case will be discussed for its clinical significance, presentation, and medical management.
