Article Excerpts about Blastocystis hominis
is a common microscopic parasitic organism found throughout the world.
Infection with Blastocystis hominis is called blastocystosis (BLASS-toe-SIS-toe-sis.) (Source: excerpt from Blastocystis hominis Infection: DPD)
Definitions of Blastocystis hominis:
A species of parasitic protozoa found in the intestines of humans and other primates. It was classified as a yeast in 1912. Over the years, questions arose about this designation. In 1967, many physiological and morphological B. hominis characteristics were reported that fit a protozoan classification. Since that time, other papers have corroborated this work and the organism is now recognized as a protozoan parasite of humans causing intestinal disease with potentially disabling symptoms.
