Dientamoeba

 [di″ent-tah-me´bah]
a genus of small highly active, usually nonpathogenic or mildly pathogenic ameboid protozoa parasitic in the large intestine of humans and certain monkeys. D. fragilis has been associated with human infection, which is manifested chiefly by diarrhea; abdominal pain; bloody, mucoid, or loose stools; and flatulence.
