Diseases caused by human parasites remain on a worldwide basis among the principle causes of morbidity and mortality. Correct diagnosis of intestinal parasitic infection depends on proper collection, transport, detection and identification of parasites in stool specimens. Symptoms range from malaise to death. Treatment is dependent upon examining multiple stool specimens due to the erratic shed rates of some parasites. Amebae and other parasites cannot be seen in stool containing barium. Formed stool are more likely to contain amebic cysts and helminth eggs. Soft or liquid stools are more likely to contain trophozoites of the protozoa. Liquid stools must be examined within 30 minutes of passage, not 30 minutes from the time the specimen arrives in the laboratory. Soft (semi-formed) specimens should be examined within 1 hour of passage.
