Estimated of Some Biochemical Parameter in Patients Infected with Entamoeba histolytica in Maysan/Amarah Province, Iraq
The current study was carried out during the period from January 2017 to June 2017 in Maysan/ Amareh city for the detection of parasitic children infected with Entamoeba histolytica. One hundred child patients at the age’s group between 1-10 years old from both males and females with acute diarrhea clinically presented with bloody and mucoid diarrhea used to participate in the study. Samples collected from patient’s ( clinic paediatric in Shaheed Al - Sadr Teaching Hospital/Iraq, Al Zahrawi Surgical Hospitaland from the private laboratories City of Ammaraa ) and 25 persons as a healthy control .The results of biochemical parameters showed an elevated levels in liver the enzymes (GGT) and (LHD) was significantly higher than that observed in the non-patient (P<0.05).According to serum electrolytes , the serum level for, ionized calcium, and sodium were significantly lower for patients group (P<0.05). While for phosphorus and potassium there’s no significant difference between the patients group. The PH value for patients group (7.85) was significantly higher than non-patient (control group) (7.46).
