In immunosuppressed individuals, contamination leads to chronic disease, granulomatous encephalitis also reported in association with species of the Balamuthia genus and other problems including cardiac, cutaneous and pulmonary manifestations, all of which influence the prognosis.

Top of the page – Article Outline. Management and treatment Prophylactic measures include chlorination of bathing water and swimming pools and rigorous hygiene for those using contact lenses. Due to their capacity to encyst, most of these amoebae are extremely resistant to disinfection processes.

Free-living amoebae have been detected in a large number of man-made water systems, including drinking led distribution systems. Access to the PDF text.

Robert 1C. Summary and related els. The objectives of this study were to quantify the free-living amoebae present in different raw waters used for drinking water production, and to assess the effectiveness of different treatments applied for drinking water production and distribution in removing or inactivating these amoebae.


Free living amoebae, AcanthamoebaNaegleria fowleriBalamuthia MandrillarisSappiniawater, reservoir. Treatment relies on administration of amphotericin B. You may thus request that your data, should it be inaccurate, incomplete, unclear, outdated, not be used or stored, be corrected, clarified, updated or deleted. In contrast, Acanthamoeba keratitis are more frequently reported, often related to the use of contact lenses. Contamination occurs though bathing in warm fresh waters.

Moreover, free living amoebae can be hosts for other microorganisms bacteria, fungi, viruses. Sampling campaigns were conducted in Europe on different raw waters used for drinking water production, and at different steps of the treatment. Jousset 1S.

They can be responsible for serious but exceptional diseases, such as primary amoebic meningoencephalitis caused by Naegleria fowleri and granulomatous amoebic encephalitis due to Acanthamoeba sp or Balamuthia mandrillaris. Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 1 Gene s 0 Other website s 3.

Some species, belonging principally to the Acanthamoeba and Naegleria genera are able to parasitize humans.

Summary Epidemiology However, infection is rare and amibee estimated prevalence in Europe is between 0 and 3.

Saucedo 3F. Disease definition Amoebiasis is a parasitosis caused by free-living amoebae that are able to survive in an autonomous state in all natural environments. The particular hazard related to these microorganisms should be taken into account in the management of drinking water production processes, and control strategies based on physical removal rather than on disinfection should be adopted where necessary.


The Acanthamoeba genus, which encompasses about 20 species, leads to potentially severe ocular disease keratitis in immunocompetent individuals infected through the use of contaminated contact lenses or through trauma. The results of this study confirm the presence of free-living amoebae in surface waters used for drinking water production.

You amibew move this window by clicking on the headline. Clinical description In immunocompetent individuals, the Naegleria fowleri species is responsible for meningoencephalitis, the evolution of which is rapidly fatal. Amoeba found in water systems can thus assume the role of a reservoir of potential pathogens and be indirectly related to various infections.

Treatment studies were also conducted at laboratory and pilot scale. Ribas 3L.
