Part Descriptions

LP16698-0   Entamoeba histolytica
Entamoeba histolytica is an anaerobic parasitic eukaryote protozoan, part of the genus Entamoeba. It infects predominantly humans and other primates. Diverse mammals such as dogs and cats can become infected but usually do not shed cysts (the environmental survival form of the organism) with their feces, thus do not contribute significantly to transmission. The active (trophozoite) stage exists only in the host and in fresh feces; cysts survive outside the host in water and soils and on foods, especially under moist conditions on the latter. When swallowed they cause infections by excysting (to the trophozoite stage) in the digestive tract. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP16698-0   Entamoeba histolytica
A species of parasitic protozoa causing ENTAMOEBIASIS and amebic dysentery (DYSENTERY, AMEBIC). Characteristics include a single nucleus containing a small central karyosome and peripheral chromatin that is finely and regularly beaded. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP7037-7   Asp
In LOINC, the System "Asp" represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" should not be used to represent named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, because those fluids are not inherently pathologic and also, they have their own named Systems in LOINC.

LP21259-4   Entamoeba
A genus of ameboid protozoa characterized by the presence of beaded chromatin on the inner surface of the nuclear membrane. Its organisms are parasitic in invertebrates and vertebrates, including humans. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
