The clinical course of microsporidiosis caused by Enterocytozoon bieneusi and the pattern of intestinal shedding of spores have not been correlated, at least in part because detection of E. bieneusi in stools is more difficult than detection of other protozoa because of its smaller size and less intense staining. We examined with a modified trichrome stain 124 stool specimens collected over a 2-year follow-up period from 23 human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with electron… CONTINUE READING
