  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Protozoan parasite </li></ul><ul><li>Worldwide distribution </li></ul><ul><li>Giardia lamblia is a single-celled, bi-nucleated intestinal parasite </li></ul><ul><li>Has trophozoite and cyst phases </li></ul><ul><li>Lives in duodenum and jejunum </li></ul><ul><li>Typically found in lakes, streams, or ponds that have been contaminated by human and other animals </li></ul><ul><li>It causes giardiasis </li></ul>
  3. 3. MORPHOLOGY <ul><li>Two stages </li></ul><ul><li>Trophozoite </li></ul><ul><li>Cyst </li></ul><ul><li>Reproduction </li></ul><ul><li>Binary fission </li></ul>
  4. 4. Trophozoite <ul><li>SHAPE </li></ul><ul><li>Pear shaped </li></ul><ul><li>Tear drop-shaped </li></ul><ul><li>Tennis racket or heart shaped </li></ul><ul><li>SIZE </li></ul><ul><li>Length 10-20um </li></ul><ul><li>Width 5-15um </li></ul><ul><li>Thickness 2-5um </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>BODY </li></ul><ul><li>Bilaterally symmetrical </li></ul><ul><li>AXOSTYLES </li></ul><ul><li>Two in numbers, seen in midline as vertical lines </li></ul><ul><li>NUCLEI </li></ul><ul><li>Two, one on each side of body </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>FLAGELLAE </li></ul><ul><li>8 flagellae </li></ul><ul><li>(2 anterior, 2 posterior, 2 ventral, and 2 caudal) </li></ul><ul><li>- all arise from kinetosome </li></ul><ul><li>SUCKING DISCS </li></ul><ul><li>2, Circular in shape </li></ul><ul><li>Situated on ventral surface </li></ul>
  7. 7. Cyst <ul><li>SHAPE </li></ul><ul><li>Oval or ellipsoid </li></ul><ul><li>SIZE </li></ul><ul><li>Length 12um </li></ul><ul><li>Width 8um </li></ul><ul><li>NUCLEI </li></ul><ul><li>Two nuclei in immature cyst </li></ul><ul><li>Four nuclei in mature cyst </li></ul><ul><li>FLAGELLAE AND SUCKING DISCS </li></ul><ul><li>May be seen in cytoplasm </li></ul>Mature cyst
  8. 8. LIFE CYCLE of Giardia lamblia Trophozoites Trophozoites Cysts Mature Cysts Duodenum, upper ileum, gall bladder The lower portion of ileum or colon Contaminated water and food Stool Multiplied by binary fission Diarrhea Outside Outside
  9. 10. HABITAT AND TRANSMISSION <ul><li>Trophozoites </li></ul><ul><li>Colonizes in the intestines of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians </li></ul><ul><li>Definitive host is human intestine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Duodenum and Jejunum </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cyst </li></ul><ul><li>Contaminated material </li></ul><ul><li>Human colon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sigmoid colon </li></ul></ul><ul><li>TRANSMISSION </li></ul><ul><li>Via fecal-oral route </li></ul><ul><li>As few as 10 cysts can cause disease and up to 900 million cysts can be released by an infected individual in one day </li></ul>
  10. 11. Trophozoites are attached to the mucosal surface by sucker, reproduced by binary fission Diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and vomiting Mechanical blockage of the intestinal mucosa, competition for nutrients, inflammation Histology: shortening of microvilli, elongation of crypts, and damaging the brush border of the absorptive cells G. lamblia inhabits the duodenum, jejunum and upper ileum PATHOGENESIS
  11. 12. PATHOGENESIS AND PATHOLOGY <ul><li>Fat/CHO digestion decreases and causes malabsorption and maldigestion </li></ul><ul><li>Absorption decreases due to villus blunting causing malabsorption </li></ul><ul><li>Malabsorption and maldigestion causes diarrhea </li></ul><ul><li>Physical damage: clubbing of villi; decreases villus-to-crypt ratio; brush borders of cells are irregular </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>Feeds on mucous that forms in response to irritation </li></ul><ul><li>Also absorbs vitamins and amino acids </li></ul><ul><li>Giardia can also interfere with vitamin/nutrient absorption </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Vitamin A  vision </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vitamin D  Rickets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Both of these are due to long standing infections </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 14. CLINICAL FEATURES <ul><li>Incubation is 1- 2 weeks </li></ul><ul><li>Onset is gradual </li></ul><ul><li>Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, malaise, flatulence, bloating, cramping, low grade fever and steatorrhea </li></ul><ul><li>Sequelae are malabsorption, lactase deficiency, weight loss, fatigue, depression and rarely reactive arthritis </li></ul>
  14. 15. DIAGNOSIS <ul><li>PATHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION </li></ul><ul><li>Fecal examination </li></ul><ul><li>Water-like feces Trophozoites </li></ul><ul><li>Formed feces Cysts </li></ul><ul><li>Duodenal fluid or bile examination </li></ul><ul><li>String test Trophozoites </li></ul>

  16. 17. TREATMENT <ul><li>The most common treatment for giardiasis is Metronidazole (Flagyl) for 5-10 days </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It eradicates Giardia in more than 85% of cases </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Furazolidone (Furoxone) for 7-10 days </li></ul><ul><li>Quinacrine is also very effective for treating giardiasis </li></ul><ul><li>Combination therapy also may be effective </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quinacrine and Metronidazole </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tinidazole, Secnidazole and Albendazole </li></ul>
