This photomicrograph revealed stool exudates in a patient with shigellosis, which is also known as Shigella dysentery, Bacterial dysentery, or Marlow Syndrome, in its most severe manifestation, is a food-borne illness caused by infection by bacteria of the genus Shigella. Usually, those who are infected with Shigella develop diarrhea, which is often bloody, fever, and stomach cramps starting a day or two after they are exposed to the bacterium. Shigellosis usually resolves in 5 to 7 days. Shigellosis rarely occurs in animals other than humans and other primates like monkeys and chimpanzees. The causative organism is frequently found in water polluted with human feces, and is transmitted via the fecal-oral route. The usual mode of transmission is directly person-to-person hand-to-mouth, in the setting of poor hygiene among children.
