ABSTRACT
Reported is a case of seven-year-old, migrant from Bihar state, infested with Fasciolopsis buski Strongyloides stercoralis Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and Ankylostoma duodenale in feces. Patient responded to treatment with piperazine, thiabendazole and albendazole, the importance of considering multiple and non-endemicparasite infestations in migrant of poor socio-economic background is emphasized.

    Microphallus papillorobustus is a manipulative trematode that induces strong behavioural alterations in the gamaridean amphipod Gammarus insensibilis, making the amphipod more vulnerable to predation by aquatic birds (definitive hosts). Conversely, the sympatric nematode Gammarinema gammari uses...
