Species with three flagella are called Tritrichomonasthose with four are called Trichomonasand Pentatrichomonas refers to trichomonads with five free anterior flagella. Three pairs of flagella emerge from the dorsal surface anterior, posterior-lateral, caudal and one pair emerges from the ventral surface. Entamoeba coliE. Clinical Syndromes Associated with Amebiasis.

However, genetic and biochemical data indicate that the non-pathogenic E. The pathogenic potential of B. The cytoplasm in mature cysts may contain diffuse glycogen and rounded or elongated chromatoid bodies with rounded ends. Encystation can also be carried out in vitro.

The trophozoites of E. In the majority of chronic cases the parasites and symptoms spontaneously disappear. Dissemination from the primary intestinal buyschlii is predominantly via the blood stream, but can also occur by direct extension of the lesion. Support Center Support Center. However, these mutants also had a reduced growth rate and lower erythrophagocytic activity, thus it is not clear whether CP5 directly participates in the invasiveness of E.

In addition, the hemorrhages and inflammation can increase the level of virus in body fluids and the numbers of HIV-infected lymphocytes and macrophages present in the genital area in persons already infected with HIV. Most of the members of this group are parasitic and only a few free-living species have been identified.

Microscopic examination of feces is essential for the recognition and identification of intestinal parasites. However, these amebas are able to cause inflammation and tissue damage in models for amebic colitis.

Infections of the GI tract account for a high proportion of deaths in infants where the standards of hygiene and nutrition are low. Entamoeba gingivalis normally lives in the gingival pockets near the base of the teeth in the human mouth, and may be coughed up in sputum specimens.

The factors responsible for the induction of encystation butschliii not known. Endolimax nana is a small non-pathogenic amoeba with world wide distribution. The more distal the lesion in the colon, the greater the likelihood and severity of symptoms; thus small rectal lesions are more likely to be symptomatic than larger cecal lesions. Balantidium coli is the only ciliate which infects humans. The major difference is that humans are the only host for E. Microscopic examination of wet mounts of fresh vaginal discharge, preferably collected with a speculum on a cotton-tipped applicator, is the most practical method of diagnosis.

Intestinal Amebae

Achromatic granules may or may not be present around the karyosome. It is not clear whether Giardia lamblia represents a single species capable of infecting a wide range of animals, or whether each host has their own ‘pet’ Giardia. The cysts are passed in the feces and can survive for up to three months under appropriate temperature and moisture conditions.


Other complications of intestinal amebiasis include colocutaneous fistula, perianal ulceration, urogenital infection, colonic stricture, intussusception, and hemorrhage. Some authors divide the trichomonads into three genera based on the number of free flagella.

Figure Butschli of suspected cases of intestinal amebiasis. Diagnosis of pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica infection using a stool ELISA based on monoclonal antibodies to the galactose-specific adhesion.

Acquired by ingesting contaminated food or water Does not appear to ubtschlii associated with HIV infection. Their cytoplasm is granular and often highly vacuolated.

Formation of the macronucleus involves fragmentation of the chromosomes and loss of DNA sequences corresponding butschii genes not expressed at high levels during the normal asexual cycle. Pathogenesis The fecal-oral transmission of the ameba usually involves contaminated food or water. During encystment the parasite rounds up, detaches from the intestinal epithelium, and secretes a cyst wall.

All of subunits are encoded by multigene families. These compounds can suppress the shedding of amebas into the stool but may not interfere with the course of invasion infection. For example, the development of invasive disease could be due to quantitative or qualitative aspects of the host immune response.
