12.3.1. Types of infectious diseases

Diseases produced by external and internal parasites

Disease-causing parasitic organisms can be:

  • Ectoparasites or external parasites: they act as vectors, transmitting diseases such as typhusmalariadysentery and pediculosis.
  • Endoparasites or internal parasites: such as worms, which cause diseases such as ascariasis (roundworm), trichinosis and anisakiasis.

Parasites: lice

Lice are parasites that, in addition to discomfort, can transmit diseases. Here you can see a video of a girl with lice nasty enough to hide. But if you want to see a head full of lice, you can see it. Does it already itch you?
