|Contribution||Reported amebae as almost certain cause of severe dysentery in a human.|
|Notes||Also spelled Loesch. See book by Kean, Mott and Russell. Successfully transmitted the infection to a dog. Detailed description of disease and pathogen. Exceedingly cautious and correct, in saying that dysentery might, on the evidence he had, have been merely a predisposing factor leading to massive invasion of colon tissue by amebae.|
