Abstract: Professor István Rátz (1860-1917), Corresponding Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, headed the Institute of Pathology of the Veterinary College of Budapest from 1890 up to 1917. Besides general pathology and pathological anatomy, he lectured on parasitology as well. In addition to his work as a pathologist, he displayed comprehensive research and literary activity principally in the field of parasitology. During his studies on animal parasites (protozoa, trematodes, tapeworms, nematodes, arthropods), he described several new genera. Further to his works of morphological nature, Rátz dealt with the concept and conditions of parasitism, the general biology and development of parasites, and the pathological significance of parasitoses. István Rátz can be considered and honoured as the founder of Hungarian veterinary parasitology. A list of his published works is included.
