Blastocystis Hominis Infection

  • Blastocystis Hominis Infection

    Blastocystis hominis is a microscopic organism that may be found in the stools of healthy people who aren't having any digestive symptoms. Blastocystis hominis is also sometimes found in the stools of people who have diarrhea, abdominal pain or other gastrointestinal problems.

  • Blastocystis Hominis Infection

    Symptoms: Signs and symptoms that might be associated with blastocystis include: Diarrhea Nausea Abdominal cramps Bloating Excessive gas (flatulence) Hives Loss of appetite Fatigue

  • Blastocystis Hominis Infection

    Treatment:Treatment of Blastocystis infection remains a complicated issue. Because there is still a great deal of debate about the true pathogenicity of Blastocystis, there is still much debate about the need for treatment. Further knowledge about the genotyping and subtyping of Blastocystis and the impact that various subtypes may have on pathogenicity and antimicrobial efficacy is still being sought [22]. In a symptomatic patient, isolation of cysts in stool specimens should trigger a thorough evaluation for other causes of the patient’s gastrointestinal tract complaints, given the possibility for coinfection with other pathogens.

  • Blastocystis Hominis Infection

    Statistics:We sought to determine the prevalence of Blastocystis in stool and to characterize clinical features of infection with Blastocystis in children. Forty-six (3%) of 1,736 patients undergoing fecal microscopy at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh between January 1, 1985, and December 31, 1988, harbored Blastocystis. Of these 46 children, 75% had exposure to well water or had been in developing countries. Thirty-nine of the 46 (85%) experienced gastrointestinal symptoms, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and weight loss. Blastocystis was the only parasite found in 35 of those 39 symptomatic children.
