  • Sappinia Infection

    Sappinia is a free-living ameba, or amoeba* (a single-celled living organism), found in the environment. There are two known species of Sappinia: Sappinia diploidea and Sappinia pedata. This ameba causes amebic encephalitis, which is an infection of the brain. Worldwide, only one case of amebic encephalitis due to Sappinia infection has been reported.

    The DNA sample from the GAE case was then amplified in the species-specific duplex TaqMan PCR assay. The GAE sample tested negative for S. diploidea but had S. pedata–specific priming sites that allowed us to infer that the amoeba causing GAE in this case was a different species of Sappiniaand most likely a strain of S. pedata.
