The material for microscopic examination were blood, bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid, lymph node puncture, feces, duodenal contents and bile, urine, sputum, urogenital tract secretions, tissue biopsies, smears from the mucous membranes of the mouth, tonsils, nose, etc. The final diagnosis of helminth infections can be established only on the basis of the positive findings of laboratory research. The basic method of laboratory diagnosis of these invasions is the detection of helminth eggs or larvae. The material for the research is the feces, the contents of the duodenum, blood, sputum, tissue biopsies, and other materials. Slides of blood microscopy are usually prepared on glass slides, their quality and purity greatly impact the effectiveness of detection and identification of blood parasites. The material from leishmaniasis patients is studied under immersion; Leishmania locate mainly outside the cell, but often they are found in the cytoplasm of mononuclear cells and neutrophils. The number of Leishmania in a single cell can reach several tens. They are in the form of small round or oval cells ranging in size from 2.5 to 5 microns. The cytoplasm is gray-blue co­lored, the nucleus are red or red-purple, kinetoplasts are dark purple color. The presence of a nucleus and kinetoplasts is the main feature that distinguishes Leishmania from platelets, cocci, and yeast cells. In a laboratory study (painting by Romanovsky — ­Giemsa), microfilaria are colored in dark blue and resemble crimped fibers. Inside the larvae nuclear grain is easy visible. The causative agents of parasitic and infectious diseases can also be found in other biological substances of the human body: the urine, cerebrospinal fluid, bone marrow, secretion of urinary organs, duodenal contents, bile, and phlegm.
