  • Blastocystis Infection

    Any Infection with blastocystis is called blastocystosis. Blastocystis hominis is one common type of parasite which can be found in stools of healthy peoples also as well as peoples, who are suffering from Diarrhea, Abdominal Pain, or any other gastrointestinal discomfort.
  • Blastocystis Infection

    There are some type of blastocystis, which can cause synptomatic infection along with other types of infection. However, normally these parasite simply remains in the gut and do not affect in general.

  • Blastocystis Infection

    There is as such no treatment for blastocystosis, and the infection usually gets clear on its own. However, if signs and symptoms do not improve within a time period, a doctor may recommend some medicine. Research in this area is still going on, but researchers have not reached to a conclusion of exact cause of Blastocytosis.

  • Blastocystis Infection

    The prevalence of intestinal microsporidiosis among human immunodefiency virus (HIV)-infected persons with chronic diarrhea varies from 7% to 50%; thus, microsporidia are a significant source of morbidity and, occasionally, mortality among these patients. Anecdotal reports suggest that intestinal microsporidiosis is also an important infection in patients with AIDS in Germany. To determine the prevalence of microsporidiosis among HIV-infected patients in Germany, we performed a prospective coprodiagnostic study of 97 consecutive HIV-infected patients. Microsporidia were the most common enteropathogen identified in 18 (36.0%) of 50 patients with diarrhea and 2 (4.3%) of 47 patients without diarrhea (P < .001; chi2 test). Microsporidia were present in 60% of patients with chronic diarrhea and 5.9% of patients with acute diarrhea. The etiologic agent was Enterocytozoon bieneusi in 18 patients and Encephalitozoon intestinalis in two patients. The prevalence of intestinal microsporidiosis in this cohort of German patients with AIDS and diarrhea is one of the highest to be reported anywhere in the world. Microsporidiosis seems to represent one of the most important causes of diarrhea in HIV-infected patients in Germany and thus must be considered in the differential diagnosis for all AIDS patients presenting with diarrhea.
