Microbiology Digestive System Case Study:

Linda and Steve go on their honeymoon to the Florida Keys. When there, they decide to swim with the manatees. While swimming with them, Linda slips and gets a mouthful of water. The water is a little cloudy, and she thinks nothing of it. A week later, she has nausea, gas, continuous diarrhea, and exhaustion. Nothing seems to stop the diarrhea. She goes to her primary care doctor, and she gives a stool sample. The doctor diagnosis her based on the protozoan he finds.

  1. What is the diagnosis of the individual? What is the infectious agent?
  2. Could Linda have been sick for a long time? What caused the illness?
  3. How should she be treated at this point?
