The parasite’s relatively dormant cysts can survive for several months in the environment or soil, where they are dispersed in feces. The small cysts can be found in water, fertilizer, or soil that has come into contact with tainted feces. When handling or preparing food, food handlers are at risk of Amoebiasis.
When cysts infiltrate the human organism, they find a home in the gastrointestinal tract. Before entering the big intestinal tract, parasitic organisms grow in the system of digestion. They have the ability to tunnel into the colon or intestinal tract, which can result in Amoebiasis.
Amoebiasis can cause tissue damage, colitis, and bloody diarrhea, yet the majority of people show no symptoms. The individual can then spread the illness by excreting infected feces into the environment, which releases fresh cysts. When symptoms do materialize, they typically do so one to four weeks after ingesting the cysts. At this point, the symptoms are typically minor and involve loose stools and cramping in the stomach. In rare illnesses, the trophozoites may break through intestinal walls, penetrate the bloodstream, and go to multiple internal organs. The liver is where they most frequently end up, but they can also infect the cardiovascular system, lung capacity, nervous system, or other parts of the body.
