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.

Frontal and lateral chest x-rays. A huge partially empty white cyst is present in the right lung of this patient. It's upper limits are marked by a white pencil-like line of calcium, Above the white fluid and below the white penciled line, the cyst is filled with air (black). This indicates communication between the cyst and a bronchus. Usually an air-fluid interface would be a neat line. In echinococcosis, the line is irregular due to floating collapsed membranes (from the dome of the cyst) and floating daughter cysts. This is the classic floating lily sign of pulmonary echinococcosis.

The next four slides represent a remarkable radiographic demonstration of the pathological physiology involved in production of chyluria. Bilateral lymphangiograms were obtained by injecting contrast into inter-digital lymphatics. X-rays made subsequently reveal (white) dilated tortuous lymphatic channels. Flow in the lymphatics is obstructed high in the abdomen and in the chest Backflow occurs outlining the pericalyceal lymphatics and the buttercup-like renal calyces. Subsequently, the urinary bladder Fills with contrast and becomes white. In short, obstruction to lymphatic flow causes reverse flow to the kidneys and subsequently to the bladder. Consult your local radiologist for help. He will enjoy these slides.
