Amoebiasis
Amoebiasis is a disease caused by a parasite called Entamoeba histolytica. Many people infected with the parasite have no symptoms, but some get severe diarrhea and gastrointestinal distress. Other complications, such as an amebic abscess, rarely occur. One of the most common causes is its spread from infected person to other by stools or feces. This way, it is transmitted condition. Internal cause for amebiasis is due to spread through the blood to the liver, brain or other vital internal organs. Residents of developing countries and travelers to those countries are at highest risk of developing amebiasis. An antigen test is available that reliably detects the parasite, and antibiotics can effectively treat many infections.
