医学寄生虫学(Medical parasitology)Medical parasitology，the study of animality pathogen动物性病原体 harming human health, is one of basic science of preventive medicine and clinical medicine. It studies the pathogenic parasites寄生虫 and their relationships to the hosts宿主 and environment.it consists of medical protozoology医学原虫学, medical helminthology医学蠕虫学 and medical entomology医学节肢动物学.
