Amoebic and bacillary dysentery are both infections of the intestine that cause diarrhea. Amoebic dysentery is caused by amoebas found in contaminated food or drink, while bacillary dysentery is caused by bacteria found in contaminated food or drink1.
The symptoms of amoebic and bacillary dysentery include nausea, fever, and diarrhea1.
The best way to prevent against amoebic and bacillary dysentery is through the provision of clean water and improved sanitation.
