Amoebiasis is an amoebic parasitic infection that which takes place when the gut is infected by Entamoeba histolytica. Entamoeba histolytica resides in the intestines of the infected people. Infection often occurs after drinking water contaminated by infected feces or eating food prepared or washed using contaminated water.
Most people who become infected with an amoebic infection do not develop any symptoms at all. However, symptoms may develop if the parasite causes inflammation of the lining of the gut. In some cases, the amoeba can also enter the bloodstream from the gut and spread around the body to the liver, lungs and sometimes other organs. If the infection does cause symptoms, they may be due to the inflammation of the lining of the gut (leading to Amoebic Colitis) or the parasitic amoeba invades right through the gut wall, enters the blood stream and ultimately reaches the liver(leading to Amoebic Liver Abcess). Symptoms may vary between these two kinds of infections and include:
- Abdominal Pain
- Appetite Loss
