Mature cysts of E. histolytica have four nuclei while immature cysts contain one or two nuclei. The cysts range in size from 10 to 18 um and frequently have a diffuse glycogen vacuole, as in this case. Red chromatoid bodies with rounded ends are frequently found. The karyosomes may be slightly eccentrically located, and the peripheral chromatin is fine and evenly distributed.
from 15 to 30 um in diameter. With the trichrome stain the cytoplasm stains green-magenta, and the nucleus has a central karyosome. The chromatin has a delicate appearance and is distributed
Trophozoites. Feces. Trichrome stain. This E. histolytica trophozoite shows an ingested red blood cell in the cytoplasm. The nuclear structure is still fairly typical although the karyosome is eccentrically located. Ingestion of red blood cells byE.
considered to be a characteristic that distinguishes this organism from the other species ofEntamoeba. In addition to red cells, bacteria and cell debris can be found in the phagosomes of this parasite. Macrophages that have ingested cellular material can sometimes be confused with E. histolytica.
E. coli trophozoite with nuclei in which the karyosome is eccentric,
Typical E. harmanii trophozoites are small, and characteristically take a light stain. The nucleus is small, has a discrete central karyosome, and fine peripheral chromatin. The cytoplasm, which usually is finely granular, never contains red blood cells.
