Abstract

The trichomonad species Pentatrichomonas hominis colonises the gastrointestinal tract and is generally considered as a commensal organism in humans. However, some studies have recognised an association between diarrhoea and P. hominis infection in dogs and cats. In the present report, we have identified this species using molecular tools in two patients with gastrointestinal troubles. Our data suggest that P. hominis is a possible zoonotic species with a significant potential of transmission by water and could be the causative agent of intestinal symptoms in children.
