Entamoeba histolytica (amoebic dysentery) is a human-pathogenic protozoan and is one of the most common pathogens in developing countries, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Each year approximately 50 Million people become infected and 100,000 die as a result of the infection. The pathogens are transmitted in the faecal-oral way. The incubation period is very variable and may take from some days to months and years.
