Part Description

LP14798-0   Acanthamoeba sp
Acanthamoeba species are ubiquitous soil and freshwater protozoa that have been associated with infections of the human brain, skin, lungs and eyes. Species of Acanthamoeba are distinguished mainly in the form of cysts, and include the following; those marked with an asterisk are known to cause infections. A. astronyxis*, A. castellanii*, A. comandoni, A. culbertsoni*, A. divionensis, A. griffini, A. hatchetti*, A. healyi, A. jacobsi, A. lenticulata, A. lugdunensis*, A. mauritaniensis, A. palestinensis*, A. pearcei, A. polyphaga*, A. pustulosa, A. quina*, A. rhysodes*, A. royreba, A. terricola (renamed A.castellanii Poussard), A. triangularis, and A. tubiashi. Diseases caused by Acanthamoeba include amoebic keratitis and encephalitis.The latter is caused by Acanthamoeba entering cuts and spreading to the central nervous system.

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; Updated Answer list type from NORMATIVE to EXAMPLE because the Answers in the list (Positive, Negative) are only examples of possible answers and not an exclusive list
Order vs. Observation
Both
