Pediatric Infectious Disease Unit, Soroka University Medical Center


Parasitic infections cause substantial morbidity worldwide, especially in developing populations. However, often parasitic infections remain undiagnosed and their rate is probably underestimated.

This interactive session will focus on various clinical manifestations of protozoan, helminthic and ectoparasites infections. Clinical clues to diagnosis, interpretation of radiological and laboratory findings, as well as diagnostic methods will be discussed.

Additionally, therapeutic and preventive approaches will be discussed.
