Laboratory Diagnosis Laboratory Diagnosis Diagnosis is based on detection of trophozoites in stool specimens or in tissue tratamiiento during endoscopy.
Other potential animal reservoirs include rodents and nonhuman primates. The host most often acquires the cyst through ingestion of contaminated food or water. Trophozoites are characterized by: DPDx is an education resource designed for health professionals and laboratory scientists. Image contributed by the Oregon Public Health Laboratory.
Enter Email Address What’s this? December tratamoento, Content source: The trophozoites reside in the lumen of the large intestine of humans and animals, where they replicate by binary fission, during which conjugation may occur.
Symptoms can be severe in debilitated persons. Note the cytosome black arrow and the bean shaped macronucleus. Both Balantidium coli trophozoites and cysts balantidaisis found in stool.

Cysts are less frequently encountered. Trophozoites undergo encystation to produce infective cysts.

Cysts are the parasite stage responsible for transmission of balantidiasis. Clinical manifestations, when present, balaantidiasis persistent diarrhea, occasionally dysentery, abdominal pain, and weight loss.
Life Cycle Cysts are the parasite stage responsible for transmission of balantidiasis. Balantidium coli is passed intermittently and once outside the colon is rapidly destroyed.
Note the visible cilia on the cell surface. Some trophozoites invade the wall of the colon and multiply.

Morphologic comparison with other intestinal parasites. Linking to a non-federal site does not constitute an endorsement by HHS, CDC or any of its employees of the sponsors or the information and products presented on the site.
Thus stool specimens should be collected repeatedly, and immediately examined or preserved to enhance detection of the parasite. Most cases are asymptomatic.
