In brief: Stool examination

There are multiple causes of dysentery.
The presence of dysentery can be determined by naked eye examination of stools. The cause of dysentery requires microscopic examination of stools for parasites, such as e histolytica, culture for bacteria and tests for inflammatory bowel disease.
