Malaria is an infectious disease caused by an intracellular parasite, Plasmodium, which is transmitted to humans after the bite of an Anopheles mosquito. This disease has been prevalent for decades. It has caused great epidemics in history and has also delayed social and economic development. It is endemic in the Eastern Mediterranean and Southeastern Anatolia regions of our country. The most common plasmodium in our country is P. vivax. In P. vivax infections, patients should be treated with primaquine to eradicate hypnozoites...

The most common types of malaria in the world are Plasmodium vivax and P. falciparum. In countries where both species are endemic, P. vivax and P. falciparum coinfection also occurs. Thus, the possibility of mixed malaria in Turkey should always be considered in cases with a traveling history to these countries. Here, we report a case of P. vivax/P. falciparum mixed infection that was diagnosed as P. falciparum malaria in Ethiopia. However, the administered treatment was inadequate, and infection recurred because of the miss in the diagnosis of P...

OBJECTIVE: Echinococcus granulosus, the etiological agent of cystic echinococcosis (CE) in humans and livestock, is a widely distributed zoonotic pathogen tapeworm. The infection is transmitted to humans by the ingestion of E. granulosus eggs released in the feces of definitive hosts such as dogs. The larval stage of the parasite develops a slowly enlarging cyst in the visceral organs, particularly in the liver and/or lung. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of an immunochromatographic test (ICT) for CE...

Over the past decade, the number of international travels has increased. Hence, the risk of transmission of parasitic diseases has also increased. One of the risk infections is malaria; Plasmodium vivax and P. falciparum species can be transmitted. The distribution of leishmaniasis cases has been reported from the south of USA to the north of Argentina. Approximately 57,000 cases of cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis occur annually, and approximately 4000 visceral leishmaniasis cases are observed. It is reported that Chagas disease is endemic in 21 countries, and approximately 6 million people are affected every year...

Zoonotic infections are globally important diseases and lead to huge economic losses in both low- and middle-income and high-income countries. Global warming, environmental and ecological changes, illegal movement of animals and humans, regional civil wars, and poverty are predisposing factors for the emergence of zoonotic infections and their distribution worldwide; they are also a big threat for the future. In addition, environmental pollution and antimicrobial resistance are immense serious threats and dangers to prevent and control zoonotic infections...

In the last decades, there has been a significant increase in international human mobility with increase in the prosperity, travel possibilities, and number of refugees. In the first half of 2016, the Asian continent showed the fastest growth in the number of tourists. Such increase is seen due to the interest in Asian history, culture, and cuisine. In the globalizing world, human mobility causes changes in the epidemiology of diseases and the spread of various infections across continents. Parasitic infections that may pose a risk for travellers to the Asia-Pacific are malaria, leishmaniasis, filariasis, foodborne trematode infections, schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted infections, and tourist diarrhea...
