Cutaneous amebiasis in children

, : Cutaneous amebiasis in children. Pediatric Dermatology 10(4): 352-355

A 7-month-old girl in Mexico, developed cutaneous amoebiasis of the perianal and genital areas in association with amoebic dysentery. The diagnosis was confirmed by the identification of Entamoeba histolytica on skin biopsy. She was treated with dihydroemetine (1 mg/kg/day x 10) and metronidazole (30 mg/kg/day x 21) with excellent results.
