Hi roselle,
He certainly must be having some reason to suspect amoebic dysentery. Probably that is a very common cause of dysentery in your area. To be certain, that, it is amoebic, stool examination is required. On clinical examination we can suspect amoebiasis, if there is tenderness in the right iliac fossa, on deep palpation.
