C.P khare Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeial Plant Drugs Expanded Therapeutics Ebook PDF download Most individuals with Entamoeba histolytica have asymptomatic, noninvasive intestinal tract infection. When symptomatic, clinical syndromes associated with E histolytica infec- tion include cramps, watery or bloody diar- rhea, and weight loss. Occasionally, the parasite may spread to other organs, most commonly the liver (liver abscess), and cause fever and right upper quadrant pain. Disease is more severe in people who are very young, elderly, or malnourished and pregnant women. People with symptomatic intestinal amebiasis gener- ally have a gradual onset of symptoms over 1 to 3 weeks.

The mildest form of intestinal tract disease is nondysenteric colitis. However, ame- bic dysentery is the most common clinical manifestation of amebiasis and usually includes diarrhea with gross or microscopic blood in the stool, lower abdominal pain, and tenesmus. Weight loss is common, but fever occurs only in a minority of patients (8%–38%). Symptoms can be chronic, with periods of diarrhea and intestinal spasms alternating with periods of constipation, and can mimic inflam- matory bowel disease. Progressive involvement of the colon can produce toxic megacolon, ful- minant colitis, ulceration of the colon and peri- anal area, and, rarely, perforation. Colonic progression can occur at multiples sites and carries a high fatality rate.

Progression can occur in patients inappropriately treated with corticosteroids or antimotility drugs. An ame- boma may occur as an annular lesion of the colon and may present as a palpable mass on physical examination. Amebomas can occur in any area of the colon but are more common in the cecum and may be mistaken for colonic carcinoma. Amebomas usually resolve with antiamebic therapy and do not require surgery.
