Entamoeba histolytica is an opportunistic protozoan. Infection of the parasite occurs from ingestion of contaminated food and water. The parasite usually remains in the colon and cecum but can cause invasive infections in immunocompromised individuals. Histolytica can spread to the liver, brain, and lungs through the bloodstream if you are immunocompromised and requires emergency treatment.1
Symptoms of infection usually appear one to four weeks after ingestion. Symptoms include diarrhea, stomach pain, stomach cramps, and rarely fever and liver issues. Diagnosis of the parasite is made from a microscoped stool sample test. There is a possibility that false positive results can occur due to confusion with other amoebas like Entamoeba dispar. Antibody tests might be needed if you test positive for the parasite to make sure you are suffering from an Entamoeba histolytica infection.2

If you require medication to rid yourself of the parasite, ask your doctor about using diloxanide furoate, Alinia, iodoquinol, or Tindamax.
