Abstract


Pathogenic properties of Blastocystis spp. - widespread of this protozoan organism remains debatable. Data on clinical observations demonstrating that the manifest forms of invasive Blastocystis spp . can occur from mild diarrhea, dysentery-like, to severe ulcer-necrotizing bowel perforation with complications and poor prognosis. However, one should not exaggerate the pathogenic properties of these protozoa because most infected people are asymptomatic carriers, or have symptoms of diarrhea syndrome of varying severity and duration.
