The study of diseases caused by helminths and protozoa.

Parasitology is the study of parasites, particularly in the context of disease (i.e., rather than ecology), and here the concept of parasites is narrowly defined to include especially eukaryotic organism symbionts that can causes diseases of eukaryotic organism hosts (e.g., such as ourselves).
