Resources Causal Agents Chilomastix mesnili is a nonpathogenic flagellate that is often described as a commensal organism in the human gastrointestinal tract. Life Cycle View Larger The cyst stage is resistant to environmental pressures and is responsible for transmission of Chilomastix. Both cysts and trophozoites can be found in the feces diagnostic stages. Infection occurs by the ingestion of cysts in contaminated water, food, or by the fecal-oral route hands or fomites.

Infection occurs by the ingestion of cysts in contaminated water, food, or by the fecal-oral route hands or fomites. In the large and possibly small intestine, excystation releases trophozoites. Geographic Distribution Worldwide. It is more prevalent in areas with inadequate sanitation. Clinical Presentation Chilomastix mesnili is considered nonpathogenic. Chilomastix mesnili trophozoites, trichrome stain.

Chilomastix mesnili is a flagellated protozoan generally regarded as nonpathogenic in the human host. The anterior end is rounded and contains a single nucleus with an eccentric karyosome. The posterior end tapers off to a point. Figure A: Trophozoite of C. Image taken at x magnification.

Laboratory Safety Standard precautions for the processing of stool samples apply. While Chilomastix mesnili is non-pathogenic, care should be taken to avoid other enteric pathogens potentially in unfixed stools.

Chilomastix mesnili: características, morfología, ciclo biológico

Introduction[ edit ] Chilomastix is a genus of pyriform-shaped excavates within the family Retortamonadidae [1] All species within this genus are flagellated, structured with 3 flagella pointing anteriorly and a fourth contained within the feeding groove. Chilomastix mesnili is one of the more studied species in this genus due to the fact it is a human parasite. Therefore, much of the information on this genus is based on what is known about this one species. History of Knowledge[ edit ] The nomenclature of this genus has been under much dispute throughout history, switching between many different taxonomic names. The first known report of this genus was in when patients in Paris showed infection by a parasitic flagellate. Chilomastix mesnili in by Kofoid. The initial proposal of Chilomastix being its own genus was urged by Alexeieffe in who was the first to thoroughly describe a species belonging to this genus.
