Naegleria fowleri: diagnosis, treatment options and pathogenesis
TLDR
Naegleria fowleri is known to cause devastating primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) and, although considered rare in developed countries, a large number of PAM cases in developing countries go unnoticed. Expand

TLDR
The development of a rapid, multiplex, real-time PCR test by the CDC has made it possible to simultaneously detect and distinguish the 3 species of amebae that are free-living— Acanthamoeba species, Balamuthia mandrillaris, and Naegleria fowleri. Expand
The role of free-living pathogenic amoeba in the transmission of leprosy: a proof of principle.
TLDR
Findings provide proof of principle that free-living pathogenic amoebae are capable of ingesting and supporting the viability of M. leprae, and may play a role in transporting leprosy bacilli through broken skin or the nasal mucosa. Expand
Lethal encounters: The evolving spectrum of amoebic meningoencephalitis
TLDR
The three most commonly diagnosed species that infect humans: Naegleria fowleri, Acanthamoeba species, and Balamuthia mandrillaris are reviewed. Expand
Naegleria fowleri after 50 years: is it a neglected pathogen?
TLDR
It is important that investigations continue and that researchers collaborate to gain better understanding of the pathogenesis of this disease and, consequently, to improve the diagnosis and treatment of this devastating infection of the CNS. Expand

TLDR
The probable case definition used in this study appears to capture cases of PAM, as evidenced by similarities in outcomes, clinical course, and CSF profile to confirmed cases. Expand
