Pus Cells Stool
Colitis : Pus cells or fecal white blood cells or leukocytes indicate inflammatory process in the bowel. Broadly there are two main causes; infectious and noninfectious.

Normal, irrelevant: Despite advice you can find on line, "stool analysis" is not recommended except specific tests for particular problems in people with symptoms or otherwise at high risk for certain digestive or intestinal disorders. In a healthy person without symptoms, these findings are meaningless. See your doctor if you have symptoms like unexplained diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc. Otherwise no worries. ...Read more
Suggests infection: Fecal leukocytes are not normally present in stool in healthy individuals, and if 6-10 is considered moderately elevated and suggest inflammation from infection, usually a bacterial infection such as Salmonella or Shigella or potentially Ameba.

Amoebic dysentery: Did they check for amoeba/parasites on this stool sample? I assume they did. If there was no evidence of amoebiasis, then it's probably gone. The inflammation in the gut can take a longer time to go away however. If your child is still having diarrhea, i recommend you talk with your doctor about how to help the intestines recover from the recent infection. ...Read more
