Intestinal microsporidiosis: first reported case in Thailand.

Abstract

Enterocytozoon spores were identified by light microscopy in stool specimens of a 34-year-old HIV-positive man from Bangkok, Thailand, who presented with watery diarrhoea. The spores measured 0.5-1.0 × 1.1 µm and stained bright pinkish-red with Gomori's trichrome. This is the first case of Enterocytozoon infection to be reported from Thailand.
