Balantidium Coli by Fernando Orellana Burgoa on Prezi
December 4, Content source: Following ingestion, excystation occurs in the small balantdiasis, and the trophozoites colonize the large intestine. Symptoms can be severe in debilitated persons.
Some return to the lumen and disintegrate. Laboratory Diagnosis Laboratory Diagnosis Diagnosis is based on detection of trophozoites in stool specimens or in tissue collected during endoscopy. Note the cytosome black arrow and the bean shaped macronucleus.
Morphologic comparison with other intestinal parasites. Trophozoites undergo encystation to produce infective cysts. Cysts are less frequently encountered.
Because pigs are an animal reservoir, human infections occur more frequently in areas where pigs are raised. Recommend on Facebook Tweet Share Compartir.
Trophozoites are characterized by: Diagnosis is based on detection of trophozoites in stool specimens or in tissue collected during endoscopy. DPDx is an education resource designed for health professionals and laboratory scientists. Image Gallery Balantidium coli cysts tratajiento wet mounts. Mature cysts are passed with feces. Cysts are the parasite stage responsible for transmission of balantidiasis.
Note the visible cilia on the cell surface. Thus stool specimens should be collected repeatedly, and immediately examined or preserved to enhance detection of the parasite. Enter Email Address What’s this? Both Balantidium coli trophozoites and cysts are found in stool.

Some trophozoites invade the wall of the colon and multiply. Clinical manifestations, when present, include persistent diarrhea, occasionally dysentery, abdominal pain, and weight loss.

Balantidium coli is passed intermittently and once outside the colon is rapidly destroyed.
Other potential animal reservoirs include rodents and nonhuman primates. The host most often acquires the cyst through ingestion of contaminated food or water.
The trophozoites reside in the lumen of the large intestine of humans and animals, where they replicate by binary fission, during balantidlasis conjugation may occur.
