Abstract During January 2008-October 2013, a total of 12 cases of giardiasis at the Chaim Sheba and Shaare Zedek Medical Centers, Israel, did not respond to nitroimidazole; 83.3\% were associated with travel and 33\% with immunoglobulin deficiency. Among 110 published cases, the most effective treatment was quinacrine (efficacy 90\%-100\%), but its availability is limited.
