Dysentery is an inflammation of the intestine characterized by the frequent

passage of feces, usually with blood and mucus. The two most common causes of
dysentery are infection with a bacillus of the Shigella group, and infestation by an
ameba, Entamoeba histolytica. Both bacillary and amebic dysentery are spread by
fecal contamination of food and water and are most common where sanitation is
poor. They are primarily diseases of the tropics, but may occur in any climate.
Dysentery (formerly known as flux or the bloody flux) is an inflammatory disorder of
the intestine, especially of the colon, that results in severe diarrhea containing
mucus and/or blood in the feces. If left untreated, dysentery can be fatal.

Dysentery is usually caused by a bacterial or protozoan infection or
infestation of parasitic worms, but can also be caused by a chemical irritant or viral
infection. The most common cause of the disease in developed countries is infection
with a bacillus of the Shigella group (causing bacillary dysentery). Infection with the
amoeba Entamoeba histolytica, can cause amoebic dysentery.
Shigella is a genus of Gram-negative, non-spore forming rod-shaped bacteria
closely related to Escherichia coli and Salmonella. The causative agent of human
shigellosis, Shigella cause disease in primates, but not in other mammals. It is only
naturally found in humans and apes. During infection, it typically causes dysentery.
Shigella causes dysentery that result in the destruction of the epithelial cells
of the intestinal mucosa in the cecum and rectum.
Entamoeba histolytica is an anaerobic parasitic protozoan, part of the genus
Entamoeba. Predominantly infecting humans and other primates, E. histolytica is
estimated to infect about 50 million people worldwide. When cysts are swallowed
they cause infections by excysting (releasing the trophozoite stage) in the digestive
tract. The trophozoite stage is readily killed in the environment and cannot survive
passage through the acidic stomach to cause infection.

E. histolytica was also found to be transmitted through anal-oral sex. The

research has shown that HIV-infected gay men were at greater risk of getting
infected than healthy population and than seropositive heterosexuals.

Modes of Transmission:
1. The disease can be passed from one person to another through fecal-oral
2. The disease can be transmitted through direct contact, through sexual
contact by orogenital, oroanal, and proctogenital sexual activity.
3. Through indirect contact, the disease can infect humans by ingestion of food
especially uncooked leafy vegetables or foods contaminated with fecal
materials containing E. histolytica cysts.


It can be diagnosed by stool samples but it is important to note that certain
other species are impossible to distinguish by microscopy alone. Trophozoites may
be seen in a fresh fecal smear and cysts in an ordinary stool sample.

Dysentery is initially managed by maintaining fluid intake using oral
rehydration therapy. If this treatment cannot be adequately maintained due to
vomiting or the profuseness of diarrhea, hospital admission may be required for
intravenous fluid replacement.
Diet restriction, to known well-tolerated foods, and the BRAT diet and its
extensions, may be used for 1-to-3 days. However, limiting milk to children has no
effect on the duration of diarrhea
Nursing Management:
1. Observe isolation and enteric precaution
2. Provide health education and instruct patient to
○ Boil water for drinking or use purified water
○ Avoid washing food from open drum or pail
○ Cover leftover food
○ Wash hands after defecations and before eating
○ Avoid ground vegetables (lettuce, carrots, and the like)
Methods of Prevention:
1. Health education
2. Sanitary disposal of feces
3. Protect, chlorinate, and purify drinking water
4. Observe scrupulous cleanliness in food preparation and food handling
5. Detection and treatment of carriers
6. Fly control (they can serve as vector)
