ABSTRACT

Pleuropulmonary infections are not uncommon in tropical and subtropical countries. Its distribution and prevalence in developed nations has been curtailed by various successfully implemented preventive health measures and geographic conditions. In few low and middle income nations, pulmonary parasitic infections still remain a problem, although not rampant. With increase in immunocompromised patients in these regions, there has been an upsurge in parasites isolated and reported in the recent past. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2018; 8(4):165-180
