Presentation ranges from mild diarrhea to dysentery and liver abscesses. Contrast-enhanced tomography and colonos-copy are sensitive tools for the workshop of differential diagnosis of a cecal mass.

A colonoscopy was performed and showed a bulky-ulcerated mass in the cecum area.

Typically, infection is acquired from ingestion of water or food contaminated by cysts. In addition, amebic trophozoites were documented within the exudative tissue.

Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, weight loss, rectal bleeding and in some cases bowel obstructive symptoms.
