Amebiasis or Amebic dysentery is common in tropical countries. It is caused by Entamoeba histolytica and spreads through contaminated water and food. Symptoms of Amebiasis include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fatigue and soft stools with mucus and sometimes blood. It can also lead to fever, rapid pulse and abdominal tenderness. A person suffering from Amebic dysentery is likely to suffer liver enlargement. Stool tests will indicate the organism that causes dysentery. Amebiasis is treated with metronidazole or Tinadazole. If left untreated, Amebic dysentery can lead to dehydration and even death.
