  2. Entamoeba coli, E. hartmanni, E. polecki, Endolimax nana, and Iodamoeba buetschlii are generally considered nonpathogenic and reside in the lumen of the large intestine in the human host. Both cysts and trophozoites of these species are passed in stool and are considered diagnostic . Cysts are typically found in formed stool, whereas trophozoites are typically found in diarrheal stool.

  3. Aug 30, 2021 · Entamoeba coli is one of many non-pathogenic protozoa found in humans.[1] . It is transmitted through fecal-oral contact, and the mature cyst can be found in contaminated water.[2] . Typically, these protozoa inhabit the large intestinal tract and can be identified in diagnostic stool specimens.[3] .

    Several protozoan species in the genus Entamoeba colonize humans, but not all of them are associated with disease. Entamoeba histolytica is well recognized as a pathogenic ameba, associated with intestinal and extraintestinal infections. Other morphologically-identical Entamoeba spp., including E. dispar, E. moshkovskii, and E. bangladeshi, are generally not associated with disease although investigations into pathogenic potential are ongoing. While the discussed species are morphologically-identical, E. histolytica may be observed with ingested red blood cells (erythrophagocytosis); E. dispar may occasionally be seen with ingested erythrocytes as well, although its capacity for erythrophagocytosis is much less than that of E. histolytica. Non-pathogenic amebae (e.g. Endolimax nana, Iodamoeba buetschlii, other Entamoeba species) are important because they may be confused with E. histolyticain diagnostic investigations.

    Cysts and trophozoites are passed in feces . Cysts are typically found in formed stool, whereas trophozoites are typically found in diarrheal stool. Infection with Entamoeba histolytica (and E.dispar) occurs via ingestion of mature cysts from fecally contaminated food, water, or hands. Exposure to infectious cysts and trophozoites in fecal matter during sexual contact may also occur. Excystation occurs in the small intestine and trophozoites are released, which migrate to the large intestine. Trophozoites may remain confined to the intestinal lumen (A: noninvasive infection) with individuals continuing to pass cysts in their stool (asymptomatic carriers). Trophozoites can invade the intestinal mucosa (B: intestinal disease), or blood vessels, reaching extraintestinal sites such as the liver, brain, and lungs (C: extraintestinal disease). Trophozoites multiply by binary fission and produce cysts , and both stages are passed in the feces . Cysts can survive days to weeks in the extern...

    Pathogenic Entamoeba species occur worldwide and are frequently recovered from fresh water contaminated with human feces. The majority of amebiasis cases occur in developing countries. In industrialized countries, risk groups include men who have sex with men, travelers, recent immigrants, immunocompromised persons, and institutionalized populations.

  4. Entamoeba coli are detected in the feces during an ova & parasite examination. Trophozoite and cyst forms can be detected. As with all ameba the trophozoite and cyst forms are seen in liquid stool while cysts are generally only seen in formed stool. The trophozoites range in size between 15-50u but normally are 20-24u in size.
