Coli may ingest these rather than bacteria; occasionally, the cytoplasm also contains ingested spores of Sphaerita sp. and possibly a Giardia lamblia cyst. 2). Again, for reasons that are not specifically known, trophozoites discharge their undigested food and begin to round up prior to precyst and cyst formation. Early cysts usually contain a dense glycogen mass and may also contain chromatoidal bars, which tend to be splinter shaped and irregular. 3). Occasionally, the number of nuclei reaches 16.
Histolytica/E. dispar group or can be used to differentiate pathogenic E. histolytica from nonpathogenic E. dispar. Remember 18 Chapter 2 that some of these reagent kits may require fresh or frozen stools only; formalin-preserved stool or stool containing polyvinyl alcohol are not acceptable. 6. The serologic test result for antibody may or may not be positive in intestinal disease and is much more likely to be positive in extraintestinal disease.
