Entamoeba histolytica/Entamoeba dispar trophozoites have a single nucleus, which have a centrally placed karyosome and uniformly distributed peripheral chromatin. This typical appearance of the nucleus is not always observed as some trophozoites can have nuclei with an eccentric karyosome and unevenly distributed peripheral chromatin.

Dec 26, 2019 · The trophozoite produces lyticenzymes which can spread to other organs, including the liver, causing amebic ulceration. While E. dispar resembles E. histolytica in appearance, it is not pathogenic. When engulfed red blood cells are visible within E. histolytica trophozoites, the distinguishing characteristic of these two types is confirmed.
The protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica is the causative agent of amoebiasis, a human disease characterized by dysentery and liver abscess. The physiopathology of hepatic lesions can be satisfactorily reproduced in the hamster animal model by the administration of trophozoites through the portal vein route.
