The identification of parasites in fish tissue sections


Nowak, BF and Elliott, DG and Bruno, DW, The identification of parasites in fish tissue sections, Bulletin of the European Association of Fish Pathologists, 22, (2) pp. 173-177. ISSN 0108-0288 (2002) [Refereed Article]


The identification of parasites in tissue sections is often difficult and fresh specimens are always required for accurate taxonomical classification. However, histological sections are in many cases the only material available and the identification of parasites in sections the subject of the recent histopathology workshop held in Dublin. The group reviewed the characteristics of representative protozoan and metazoan parasites in sections and identified key features to aid identification. A CD from the workshop will be compiled as a reference source.
