Malaria is a potentially life-threatening disease caused by infection with the Plasmodium protozoa transmitted by an infective female Anopheles mosquito. Despite successful control programs in many countries, malaria remains to be a major disease burden worldwide, with approximately 584,000 deaths annually. The incidence of the disease and responsible species may differ due to increased human movements between countries. Plasmodium falciparum infection carries a poor prognosis with a high mortality if untreated, but it has an excellent prognosis if diagnosed early and treated appropriately...

We aimed to demonstrate that Pentatrichomonas hominis may also be an agent, although rare, in diarrheal episodes. Stool samples were first examined macroscopically and microscopically during routine parasitological examinations. Samples were then evaluated by Native-Lugol and formol-ethyl acetate centrifugation method. To exclude other pathogenic bacterial agents, a bacteriological culture method was applied. Samples were evaluated using a qualitative immunochromatographic test kit for rotavirus and adenovirus...

Working in a laboratory is very difficult and needs special attention. Laboratory workers can be exposed to numerous potential hazards including chemical, biological, physical, and radioactive. That is why it is really important to follow the working principles in laboratories for the sake of the lab analyzers and others who work with them in the lab. Laboratory safety includes the use of certain laboratory rules, methods, infrastructures, and devices during work to protect the working person and the working material...

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...

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...

Travel is important in the spread of diseases, and the number of travelers is increasing daily. Therefore, the importance of the diseases that occur during or after travel is increasing. In underdeveloped countries in particular, parasitic diseases are epidemic or endemic, and these diseases lead to high numbers of deaths. People traveling from developed to underdeveloped countries have a higher risk of transmission of parasitic diseases during travel. Fifteen percent of the world's population lives in Africa...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. This type of dermatosis with underlying chronic inflammation significantly affects the quality of life and may be accompanied by many comorbidities. In this case, Demodex spp. was associated with treatment-resistant and persistent course of skin diseases. A 46-year-old female patient applied to our clinic with complaints of lesions on the body and hip. Her dermatological examination revealed abscess formation and post-inflammatory pigmentation...
