Amoebiasis (Colon)


A 1924 autopsy specimen showing advanced amoebic ulceration of the colon. The ulcers have become contiguous and the intervening mucosa thickened. Ragged slough protrudes into the bowel lumen and there is brownish black discolouration of the floor of some of the ulcers. No clinical information available.
