Brief Answer:
Large intestine can have microscopic parasites commonly known as amoeba

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I already reviewed the attached report.

Large intestine parasite infection is caused by a microscopic parasite commonly known as amoebas.

I recommend your brother to do a stool test and a urine test for further evaluation.

If the diagnosis is confirmed the treatment consists in Metronidazole.

It is taken three tablets a day for five to seven days.

Metronidazole tablets are a prescription only medication, so you should consult your doctor before the treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
