Diagnostic Strategies
  1. To diagnose an individual case
    Molecular diagnosis or antigen detection are the methods of choice today. Parasitological diagnosis after special staining or with the use of fluorescent agents is still an option if an experienced microscopist is available.
     
  2. To screen exposed populations
    Rapid antigen detection assays are the most convenient tests for field use.
