Abstract A book about parasites of the nervous system should be welcomed, particularly when originating in South America.

A rather lengthy section on fungal mycology seemed out of proportion to the subject matter of the book. The chapter on South American blastomycosis contains a lengthy list of published cases with nervous system involvement without comment and might have been better placed in the references. The book has no index, a few drawings of poor quality, and original references are often not given but cited as quoted by other authors.
