Prevalence

E. histolytica/dispar parasitize approximately 10% of the world population (90% asymptomatic). It has been estimated that there are 40 million amebiasis cases which cause around 110,000 deaths a year.[4,5] Detailed data about the prevalence in asymptomatic individuals in several populations are reviewed by Stanley.[6] The cyst form is resistant for several weeks in a moist environ-ment.[4] Because cysts are resistant to low amounts of water chlorination, special precautions should be taken in endemic zones and known infected households (boil water, wash vegetables and fruits with soap, and if possible, soak for 15 min in vinegar).[4]
