Abstract

A limited outbreak of symptomatic intestinal and extraintestinal amoebiasis within a family complex is described. The infection was almost certainly transmitted by a Philippino housemaid, who was an asymptomatic carrier of Entamoeba histolytica infection acquired in her native country. Starch-gel electrophoresis showed isoenzyme patterns characteristic of pathogenic zymodeme XIX in all the amoebic isolates.
