  • Naegleriasis
    Naegleriasis, also known as primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), amebic encephalitis, and naegleria infection, is an infection of the brain by the free-living protist Naegleria fowleri, also known as the "brain-eating amoeba".
  • Toxoplasmosis
    Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by Toxoplasma gondii.
  • Babesiosis
    Babesiosis is a malaria-like parasitic disease caused by infection with Babesia, a genus of Apicomplexa.
  • African trypanosomiasis
    African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is a parasitic disease of humans and other animals.
  • Chagas disease
    Chagas disease, also known as American trypanosomiasis, is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi.
  • Visceral leishmaniasis
    Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), also known as kala-azar, black fever, and Dumdum fever, is the most severe form of leishmaniasis.
  • Cutaneous leishmaniasis
    Cutaneous leishmaniasis (also known as oriental sore, tropical sore, chiclero ulcer, chiclero's ulcer or Aleppo boil) is the most common form of leishmaniasis affecting humans.
  • Cryptosporidiosis
    Cryptosporidiosis, also known as crypto, is a parasitic disease caused by Cryptosporidium, a genus of protozoan parasites in the phylum Apicomplexa.
  • Isosporiasis
    Isosporiasis is a human intestinal disease caused by the parasite Isospora belli.
  • Trichomoniasis
    Trichomoniasis is an infectious disease caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis.
  • Balantidiasis
    Balantidiasis is a protozoan infection caused by infection with Balantidium coli.
  • Amoebiasis
    Amoebiasis, also known as amebiasis or entamoebiasis, is an infection caused by any of the amoebas of the Entamoeba group.
  • Giardiasis
    Giardiasis (popularly known as beaver fever) is a zoonotic parasitic disease caused by the flagellate protozoan Giardia lamblia (also sometimes called Giardia intestinalis and Giardia duodenalis).
  • Protozoan infection
    Protozoan infections are parasitic diseases caused by organisms formerly classified in the Kingdom Protozoa.
  • Trypanosomiasis
    Trypanosomiasis or trypanosomosis is the name of several diseases in vertebrates caused by parasitic protozoan trypanosomes of the genus Trypanosoma.
  • Blastocystosis
