Amoebiasis Associated Colonic Infections Manifesting Clinically as Acute Appendicitis and Crohn’s Disease
Keywords:Amoebiasis, Crohn’s Disease, Colonoscopy, Glands, RBC
Amoebiasis or amoebic dysentery is a term used to describe an infection caused by the protozoan Entamoeba histolytica. Most infections are asymptomatic, but the invasive intestinal disease may occur manifesting with several weeks of cram ping, abdominal pain, watery or bloody diarrhoea, and weight loss. Courses on this disease and the incidence of this paras
ite in industrialised nations are not yet fully investigated. We report two rare cases of a 59-year-old lady and a 30-year-old female who manifested as acute appendicitis and Crohn’s disease respectively. Multi-sections from a biopsy of both cases revealed necrotic tissue along with multiple amoebic trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica which were confirmed by doing a PAS stain.
