In brief: Amebiasis

Amebiasis causes illness in 10- 20% of those infected.
It can lead to loose stool, cramps ; abdominal pain. Severe form (dysentery) can lead to fever ; bloody diarrhea. In rare cases it has seeded other parts of the body such as the brain or liver (where it can form an abscess).

Symptoms of e.Histolytica depend on the clinical manifestions of infection.
With intestinal disease see: noninvasive instestinal colonization, diarrhea in HIV patients, acute amebic rectocolitis, chronic nondysenteric intestinal ameiasis, ameboma, toxic megacolon, amebic peritonitis due to perforation, anebic strictures. Also, may get liver abscess, brain abscess, venereal infection, skin disease.
