Abstract

Summary

Twenty patients with intestinal amebiasis were treated with Entamide furoate. Nine were suffering from acute amebic dysentery, ten from chronic amebic colitis, and one was an asymptomatic cyst passer. In all the cases except two, stools became negative on the 3rd or 4th day, in one case on the 11th day, and in another on the 14th day of therapy. In five cases followed up for one month, stools remained negative. It is concluded that Entamide furoate is an effective amebicide, useful in both acute amebic dysentery and chronic amebic colitis.
