[prevalence of enterocytozoon bieneusi spores in the stool of aids patients and african children not infected by hiv].enterocytozoon bieneusi is a newly described microsporidia in humans thought to be responsible for chronic diarrhoea in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (aids) patients. the epidemiology of this parasite is still unknown; it could be a strictly opportunistic agent or a human enteropathogen. e. bieneusi spores were searched for in stool smears of two populations using a modified chromotrope 2r staining. the first population consisted of 60 patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus ( ...19938124104
molecular study of microsporidiosis due to enterocytozoon bieneusi and encephalitozoon intestinalis among human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients from two geographical areas: niamey, niger, and hanoi, vietnam.microsporidiosis cases due to enterocytozoon bieneusi and encephalitozoon intestinalis are emerging opportunistic infections associated with a wide range of clinical syndromes in humans. the aim of this study was to specify microsporidial epidemiology in two different geographical areas. from november 2004 to august 2005, 228 and 42 stool samples were collected in niamey, niger, and hanoi, vietnam, respectively. screening for microsporidia was performed using uv-light microscopy. detection was c ...200717634305
