The recognition and elimination of eukaryotic parasites appear to be a hardwired prerequisite for host survival. However, eukaryotic parasites such as Toxoplasma gondii, Leishmania sp., Trypanosoma cruzi, Giardia sp., and Schistosoma sp. employ the innate system of the host for their growth, replication and continuation of their life cycle. So far, however, there has been little discussion about the interaction of the eukaryotic parasites and the innate immune system. Driven by this need, this review provides an overview of the host oriented inherent measures and eukaryotic parasite countermeasures for evading host defenses. Taken together, this information could be exploited to discover new therapeutic and prophylactic intervention points for broad spectrum host oriented inherent measures and eukaryotic parasite countermeasures and to determine the infection consequence.
