What causes yellowish and bluish round particles in stool?

default
Posted on Wed, 2 Dec 2015
Question: Our son, in China, is passing smooth lentil, or chick-pea-like, yellowish balls in his stool, w/ a little bluish discoloration at the end, x ~ 1 month. There are a number of them in each bowel movement--like polka dots throughout the stool. They are firm when removed. He popped one and it was kind of hollow w/ some bluish brown pigment in it. No associated pain. Takes a large, daily multivitamin and no other medication. What might that be? Larvae? Something produced by his body?
