Amoebiasis is an infection caused by Entamoeba histolytica that shows with or without symptoms. Synonyms include entamoebiasis, amoebiosis, amoebic dysentery or bloody flux. Amoebiasis is treated using anti-amoebic drugs that work to kill those harmful amoeba causing stomach problems. Entamoeba dispar is a harmless commensal, which is indistinguishable from E. Histolytica. Some other members of the group that infect humans are E. Moshkovskii, E. Hartmannii, E. Gingivalis, Endolimax nana and Iodamoeba butschlii. It is a gastrointestinal infection that may or may not be symptomatic and can remain latent in an infected person for several years.
