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 brain. Photograph of seven year old Italian-born female who fell down five steps and shortly thereafter became unconscious for a few seconds. Vomited for a week. One month later she developed convulsions, head­aches, and intermittent drowsiness. A few hours prior to hospitalization, she vomited (nonprojectile), convulsed, complained of pain in the neck and became drowsy. Physical examination showed neck stiffness, hyperactive knee jerks, positive Kernig and Babinski reflexes. The patient went into a deep coma with occasional involuntary motions and died two days after admission. At autopsy, a 250 gram, 10 x 5 cm,, white-walled cyst bulged through the gray matter of the left cerebrum. Subsequent microscopic examination of the cyst wall revealed typical scolices of Echinococcus granulosus.
