Abstract

Entamoeba histolytica parasite causes amoebiasis or Amoebic dysentery, this parasite spreads all over the world, especially in the tropical and subtropical regions and spreads among the poor. This may be due to poor nutrition or unhealthy conditions. This disease is one of the most common parasitic diseases in the world. E. histolytica is responsible for the deaths of more than 100, 000 people annually, and this ranks third after malaria and Schistosoma in increasing the number of deaths caused by the infection of the primary parasite. E.histolytica has the ability to invade the intestinal mucus layer and spread to other organs especially the liver, causing the amoebic liver abscess.
