Summaries for Amebiasis

CDC : 3 Amebiasis is a disease caused by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica. It can affect anyone, although it is more common in people who live in tropical areas with poor sanitary conditions. Diagnosis can be difficult because other parasites can look very similar to E. histolytica when seen under a microscope. Infected people do not always become sick. If your doctor determines that you are infected and need treatment, medication is available.

MalaCards based summary : Amebiasis, also known as amoebiasis due to entamoeba histolytica, is related to leukocyte adhesion deficiency, type i and amoebiasis due to free-living amoebae. An important gene associated with Amebiasis is IL17A (Interleukin 17A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Visual Cycle in Retinal Rods and Development_Thrombopoetin signaling via JAK-STAT pathway. The drugs Sodium Citrate and Mebendazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, testes and colon.

Disease Ontology : 12 A parasitic protozoa infectious disease that involves infection caused by the amoeba Entamoeba histolytica. Amebic invasion of the intestinal lining causes dysentery, colitis or diarrhea. The infection can also spread through the blood to the liver and, rarely, to the lungs, brain or other organs.
