We share Mallika Imwong and colleagues'1 concern regarding the spread of single-fit multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites along the borders of Cambodia —ie, to Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. In 2016, in Cambodia, artesunate-mefloquine (ASMQ) replaced dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DHA-PPQ) as the first-line treatment for uncomplicated P falciparum malaria. The rationale for this combination relies on evidence that parasites carrying markers of res istance both to artemisinin (pfKelch13-580Y mutant) and piperaquine (later associated with the amplification of pfplasmepsin2)3,4 have regained suscept...

Authors: Zorbozan O, Pullukçu H, Atalay Şahar E, Karakavuk M, Can H, Tunali V, Döşkaya M, Turgay N, Töz S, Özbilgin A Abstract Malaria is a widespread and life-threatening disease in tropical and subtropical regions. In patients with typical clinical symptoms, malaria is considered as a preliminary diagnosis if there is a travel history to malaria-endemic areas. The basis of the laboratory diagnosis of malaria is the microscopic examination of Giemsa stained smears. On the other hand, the diagnosis and differentiation of Plasmodium species with microscopic examination may have some difficult...

Authors: Çetin M, Çetin Ş Abstract Toxoplasmosis, caused by the obligate intracellular protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, is a common parasitic infection affecting approximately one-third of the world population. T.gondii infections are usually acquired by ingesting raw or insufficiently cooked meat and from unwashed fruits and vegetables contaminated with soil or water with cat feces. Primary infection acquired during pregnancy can cause severe congenital abnormalities in the fetus such as neurologic and ocular malformations, abortion, or stillbirth according to the degree of infection. The aim of this st...

Authors: Yıldız Zeyrek F, Töz S, Yüksel F, Turgay N, Özbel Y Abstract Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) and cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) are seen endemically in Turkey and CL caused by Leishmania tropica is an important public health problem in southeastern as well as other regions of Turkey. The diagnosis has been usually made by clinical view of lesion and/or parasitologically using lesion aspiration smears. Histological examination does not, always reveal the parasite in the skin biopsy, particularly in chronic lesions. Besides this, due to CL infections caused by different species in endemic areas, d...

Well, phooey! Last week we finally found out that our two new kittens have giardiasis, which is an intestinal infection caused by a parasite–giardia (see photo below…it looks like a harmless balloon with a scary face, but it’s actually a microscope image of this nasty little intestinal parasite)–which can be transmitted to humans, too, especially, eek, those with an immunodeficiency. Eh. I have to be super careful. And I have been… How we found out about the giardiasis is a long messy (and smelly!!!) story that I’ll spare you.  Luckily, the kittens have responded well to the anti...
