We consider a predator-prey model where parasitic infection is spread in only predator population. We work out the local stability analysis of equilibrium point by the help of basic reproduction numbers. We also analyze the community structure of model system by the help of ecological as well as disease basic reproduction numbers. We derive Hopf bifurcation condition and permanence and impermanence of model system. We perform a numerical experiment and observe that parasitic infection in predator population stabilizes predator-prey oscillations.
