Well say hello to my dear frens who have been so kind as to take up my whole weekend..
Say hi to Mr. Plasmodium. Lets engross ourselves on a lil family history shall we?
Species: Vivax ; Malaria ; Falciparum ; Ovale
This dude rite here is responsible for all Malaria diseases and as most of u all noe.. the final host is the female Anopheles mosquito and the intermediate host is.. Us. But Malaria is divided into 3 types: Tertian malaria, Quartan malaria and Quatidia malaria. Tertian is caused by Pl. Vivax, Pl. Ovale and Pl. Falciparum. Symptoms are recurring fever every 48 hrs. Well generally, the parasites attack ur hepatic cells and red blood cells..
Believe me there's more to that to study than wat u see.. so u can imagine how much we've to stuff into our head..
Amoeba proteus.. totally harmless to us. LOL..
Aaaah.. this dude is nasty. Entamoeba histolytica.. To all u pork-lovers out there.. beware this microscopic killer.
found worldwide.. enters ur system via contaminated food and water. It feeds on the cells of ur large intestine.. specifically at ur mucosa n submucosa layers, making "soup" out of it.. YUMMY.. and forming ulcers which discharges blood. frm there it enters ur bloodstream and attacks ur liver, lungs, spleen and brain.. producing abscesses and causing pain. ultimately dissolving ur blood vessels and causing fatal haemorrhage.
SYMPTOMS are abdominal discomfort and diarrhoea alterating wit constipation and chronic diarrhoea wit mucous and blood discharges.
The Paramecium caudatum.. another harmless protozoa we're forced to study..
Another fella for pork-lovers to be afraid of..
Found worldwide. Most common in digestive tracts of pigs.. Escapes via faeces in encysted form. enters human by eating improperly washed food. It normally feeds on ur faecal matter ( thats ur shit in layman terms ).. and sometimes it attacks ur intestinal wall causing ulcers which leads to the development of dysentery and finally.. DEATH.
Species: Gambiense ; Cruzi
Ok.. Tr. Gambiense can oni be found in Africa and Tr. Cruzi can oni be found in Central and South America.
The Tr. Gambiense enters the human body via bite of Tse-tse fly and has 3 stages to the disease it causes, the African sleeping sickness. 1st stage is when the wound is itchy. 2nd stage is when u have gambian fever. during 3rd stage the parasite enters ur cerebrospinal fluid and causes African sleeping sickness. Later on patient will lose consciousness and enter a coma n eventually.. die.
Tr. Cruzi enters our system by the bite of the blood-sucking bed bugs and causes Chagas disease. It causes fever, oedema and enlargement of spleen and liver.
Species: Donovani ; Tropica
L. Donovani can be found in S. America and India and it causes visceral leishmaniasis while L. Tropica can be found in S. America and S. Asia and causes cutaneous leishmaniasis.
Both enter our system via bite of sandfly ( Phlebotomus )
Last but not least..
Giardia lamblia causes giardiasis andis found worldwide. Enters human body via contaminated food and water. Its pathologies are enteropathy, diarrhoea and steatorrhea.
Bored? Welcome to my life.. this is wat i had study for my controls on Monday. Conclusion is always take care of ur hygiene and all will be well!
