Taxonomy: f. Enteromonadidae
Animal: Enteromonas hominis 6 10.jpg
Sites: Gut
Enteromonas hominis cyst 4 - 10 x 4 - 6 microns in faecal preparation stained with Trichrome, oval with 4 nuclei. E.hominis is considered to be non-pathogenic and often not recognised so little is known of this organism; it may be more common than is thought. There were a large number in the faeces from a 49 year old male with history of chronic diarrhoea following a trip to India. They were present in 3 stool samples presented over a 3 week period. Also present were Blastocystis hominis and Enteromonas trophozoites (see 1 08 and 12 06,07).
