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.

Intestinal obstruction due to ascariasis is demonstrated on x-ray by dilatation of the small bowel by gas and fluid. X-rays made in a supine patient (2116) show enlarged gas-filled (black) boweled loops. When films are made with patients in the upright position, gas (black) in the dilated loops, layers above the white fluid (2117). Dilated small bowel with air fluid levels are pathognomonic for small bowel obstruction. In this case, the obstruction was due to A scans.

A lateral view of the skull shows multiple small amorphous punctate white calcific masses in the brain. These are calcined cysticerci. Some of these lesions are remarkable for presenting in a target-like configuration. The outer line represents calcification of the bladder wall. The inner dot is the calcified scoiex. The dark area surrounding the scolex is fluid.

A CAT scan of the skull shows multiple small, rounded, dark lucencies in the brain. These are cysticerci. Some show central, white calcific dots which are scolices. Some show peripheral calcifications. Midline bird-like and linear dark lucencies represent the ventricular system. Midline white calcific densities are probably vascular structures.

This patient has a large hepatic abscess enlarging the liver and which exerts pressure on the medial and superior surface of the stomach (lesser curvature). This is manifested by lateral and caudad displacement of the stomach which is also considerably narrowed as a result of the pressure. The stomach and the small bowel appear white because they are filled with barium in this upper GI study.
