Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Your son is suffering from colitis (intestine infection) due to entamoeba histolytica infection.
This is indicated by presence of cysts of entamoeba histolytica.
It is also supported by presence of pus cells.
Your son need proper medicines like metronidazole.
Hope I have answered your question.

Take Care
