Parasitology Case Studies
Transcript of Parasitology Case Studies
A five-year-old boy developed loose, watery stools approximately one week after attending a birthday party for a friend. The parents took the child to their health care provider for medical attention. The parents told the physician that at the party, the child played in splash pads. A stool specimen was collected in 10% formalin and submitted for laboratory testing. A formalin-ethyl acetate concentration was performed and a wet mount of the sediment was examined for ova and parasites. Objects shown in Figures A and B, measuring 5-6 micrometers on average, were observed in moderate numbers at 1000x oil magnification. The laboratory recommended to the attending physician that a modified acid-fast stain be done. It was ordered and Figure C shows what was observed. five-year-old boy loose, watery stools approximately one week splash pads 10% formalin formalin-ethyl acetate concentration wet mount Figures A and B, measuring 5-6 micrometers on average, were observed in moderate numbers at 1000x oil magnification acid-fast stain Figure C Three more cases of parasite confirmed at Drew Splash Pad, wistv 10 article

Figures A and C were captured at 200x magnification and show what was found in high numbers. Figures B, D, and E show a higher magnification (400x) of the same objects.
