      DISCUSSION. Balantidiasis is a zoonotic infection associated with pigs, cattle, hogs, rats, etc.[] Infection in healthy humans is rare and is mostly prevalent in immunocompromised patients as it is said to have low virulence.B. coli has a world-wide distribution and astoundingly is the only pathogenic member of the family Balantidiidae.[] Moreover, the prevalence of the organism was reported. Abstract. Human balantidiasis (balantidial dysentery) is an infectious disease of the cecum and colon in humans. It has also been found in chimpanzees, orangutans, rhesus monkeys, cynomolgus monkeys, pigs, peccaries, and other animals; and occasionally in dogs, rats, sheep, and cattle.

      During the past decade the Balantidium coli has attracting much attention in respect both to its pathogenicity and to its life history.. In Manila the material for study, both clinical and pathologic, has been comparatively abundant. The literature on the subject has been thoroughly reviewed by previous writers and will not be discussed those points bearing directly on the Cited by: 6. Carmel M. Curtis, Peter L.
