2010). 1). The short-term in vitro culture assay is now gold standard for the diagnosis of Blastocystis infection in humans and animals because of the highest detection rate among various stool examinations (Stensvold et al. 2009c; Dogruman-Al et al. 2010). Although the culture assay requires at least 2 days for growth, it is also cost effective, and increasing the number of organisms does not require expertise of laboratory diagnosticians. 1). These results indicate that real prevalence of these countries is higher than that of reported data.
1997) (Fig. 12). Although the size of the cyst form is relatively small, it contains one to 4 nuclei (Yoshikawa et al. 2003). Since a thick cyst wall is composed beneath the outermost surface coat, the outermost surface coat (filamentous layer) seems to be fuzzy (Figs. 14). In general, the cyst form is only detected in the fecal samples of human and animals, and rarely in in vitro cultures (Stenzel and Boreham 1991; Zaman et al. 1993, 1995; Stenzel et al. 1997; Chen et al. 1999; Moe et al. 1996; Yoshikawa et al.
