Pictorial Presentation of Parasites by Herman Zaiman

Thanks to the generosity of Herman Zaiman and his family, ASTMH proudly presents “Pictorial Presentation of Parasites,” a famous collection of more than 2,000 slides of various vectors.

Dr. Zaiman, a longtime ASTMH member, spent his career as a radiologist and educator until retiring in 2000. He taught at Einstein College in New York. He also co-authored several medical texts, including "Photographic Case Studies in Gastroenterology: Diagnostic Tests for the Practitioner" in 1992. Additionally, his writing has appeared in journals such as the Journal of Histochemistry & Cytochemistry and the American Journal of Pathology.

His "Pictorial Presentation of Parasites" is a seminal image collection that will remain a valued resource for those in the tropical medicine and hygiene field for decades to come.

Cyst in liver. A young male died of unknown cause on his honeymoon. At autopsy his liver showed an intact well encapsulated hydatid cyst. The spherical cyst has been hemi-sected. The halves are seen side by side. The cyst wall is retracted from the liver at some points. Daughter cysts and brood capsules may be seen. The red material within the cyst is blood which accumulated there following dissection.

Adult embedded in intestinal wall. The parasite presents as an oval to round mass limited by a spined cuticle. The parasitic parenchyme is punctuated by multiple sections through gut (reddish-brown). The two centrally located tubular structures, separated by a light staining muscular sucker, are part of the reproductive apparatus of the parasite. A marked inflammatory response is present in the adjacent host tissues and fresh red blood cells can be seen near the parasite.
