Clinical Information:
A variety of different parasites may be found in respiratory specimens, liver cyst aspirates, abscesses or genital discharge. These parasites may include protozoa. Infection is often asymptomatic, but possible symptoms include diarrhea and malnutrition, intestinal obstruction, and rarely, death.
 
Reference Value:
No parasite seen
 
Interpretation:
A positive result indicates the presence of the parasite but does not necessarily indicate that it is the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Some strains of protozoa are nonpathogenic and some helminths cause little or no illness.
