Introduction: the curricula in which microbiology and medical parasitology are involved have as an objective in all the cases to name the various microorganisms. Objective: to analyze the linguistic skills of health professionals in terms of microbial taxonomy. Methods: a descriptive study was carried out to review 270 scientific papers related to these specialties and 250 interviews were made to professionals from different medical specialties. They were all anonymous. Results: grammatical mistakes were observed in 73 % of the papers, in 22 % of master's theses and in 14 % of Ph D's theses, whereas nomenclature errors were found in 29 %, 13 % and 5 % respectively. Pronunciation problems were noticed in 91 % of interviews. Conclusions: pronunciation, grammatical and writing problems related to the names of microorganisms were detected in the health professionals participating in this research.
