Hookworm infection in man

Advances in Parasitology 17: 315-384

This authoritative review of knowledge concerning human hookworms (Ancylostoma duodenale, A. ceylanicum and Necator americanus) includes sections on: distribution, prevalence and significance; life-cycles and infectivity (parasitic development, auto-reinfection, prenatal or transmammary transmission, life-span); morbidity (of acute and chronic infections); mortality; pathophysiology (principally entorrhagia and iron loss); pathology; immunology (for diagnosis and in host protection); cutaneous and visceral larva migrans. A 20-page bibliography is provided.
