Abstract

A case report of a healthy, immunocompetent male, an international traveller from Germany who had visited India for a short trip, presented at our OPD with a history of loose stools, fever and abdominal pain, for two months. After thorough investigations, he was diagnosed to have an infection with Giardia lamblia acute gastroenteritis (AGE) along with eosinophilic ascites with peripheral eosinophilia, with associated Plesiomonas shigelloides diarrhoea. He was then treated with metronidazole and cotrimoxazole, which resulted in complete resolution of the symptoms.
