CDC bulletin, October, November, December, 1947
  • Description:
    On cover: Geographic distribution and incidence of human parasitic diseases. The recent world conflict intensified interest in all diseases, particularly those produced by parasitic organisms. Global operations necessitated that disease be examined on a world-wide scale. Parasitic infections are necessarily studied in relation to geography or climatology. Figure 1 shows the different climatic areas of the world. The principal warm regions are the Tropics, Subtropics, which includes a considerable part of the United States, and Temperate Zones. Some parasitic organisms are found practically throughout the world. More frequently the parasitic burden is greater in warm climates. In some instances, as in Africa and the eastern part of India, certain customs, habits, and religious practices of the people combine with climate and environmental conditions to create hyperendemic occurrence of certain animal parasite infection. A few parasite diseases are more common in temperate than in tropical areas. This discussion of animal parasite diseases is arranged in accordance with the zoological classification of the causative organism.
