Welcome to Healthcare Magic
This stool report suggests findings of possible dysentry due to gastrointestinal infection. There is no mention if any parasites or cysts are seen or not. He needs to be properly hydrated and as per the discretion of his Paediatrician and his clinical findings antibiotics may be required.
