Balantidium coli (Vestibuliferida: Balantidiidae): the persistence of an old problem

, : Balantidium coli (Vestibuliferida: Balantidiidae): the persistence of an old problem. Revista de Biologia Tropical 41(1): 149-151

Fatal cases of dysentery caused by Balantidium coli, and diagnosed post mortem, are reported from Costa Rica in 2 males aged 8 and 28 years. The most important findings in both cases were colonic inflammation, areas of damaged tissue, ulcers and abundant trophozoites in the crypts, submucosa and muscularis mucosa of the colon. In the adult, B. coli parasites were also observed in the peritoneal lymph nodes.

A mutation in the mitochondrial targeting sequence was characterized in a male patient with X chromosome-linked pyruvate dehydrogenase E1-alpha deficiency. The mutation was a base substitution of G by C at nucleotide 134 in the mitochondrial targe...
