Entamoeba histolytica. Entamoeba histolytica is a protozoan intestinal parasite that causes amoebiasis in humans. The disease affects 30-50 million people every year world-wide, with an annual mortality rate of 40,000-100,000. In some cases, infected individuals (approximately 10%) can develop invasive intestinal and/or extraintestinal More...
