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.

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.
