Transmission of Parasitic infection

The parasitic Disease can also be known as parasitosis, infectious disease can be caused or transmitted by a parasite. Many parasites do not cause diseases. Parasitic diseases can affect practically all living organisms, including plants and mammals. The parasites like Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium spp. can cause disease directly, but other organisms can cause disease by the toxins that they produce.

Food or Water Contamination - roundworm, amoebae, giardia, cryptosporidium

sand fly - leishmaniasis

Sexual Contact - trichomonas, giardia, amoebae

Inhalation of Contaminated Dust or Air - pinworm, Toxoplasma gondii

Skin Penetration - hookworms, schistosomes, strongyloides
