Signs or Symptoms of Entamoeba histolytica:

Amebiasis (or amoebiasis) is the name of the infection caused by E. histolytica.

Infections that sometimes last for years may be accompanied by 1) no symptoms, 2) vague gastrointestinal distress, 3) dysentery (with blood and mucus). Most infections occur in the digestive tract but other tissues may be invaded. Complications include 4) ulcerative and abscess pain and, rarely, 5) intestinal blockage. Onset time is highly variable. It is theorized that the absence of symptoms or their intensity varies with such factors as 1) strain of amoeba, 2) immune health of the host, and 3) associated bacteria and, perhaps, viruses. The amoeba's enzymes help it to penetrate and digest human tissues; it secretes toxic substances. (Source: FDA Bad Bug Book)
