SANCHEZ-VEGA, José Trinidad et al. Retrospective analysis of an emerging protozoan in Mexico: Blastocystis spp. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2022, vol.20, n.2, pp.101-110. ISSN 1812-9528.

Blastocystis spp. is the intracellular protist that in recent years has infected more than a billion people worldwide. However, the increase in prevalence in Mexico and its pathogenic potential are uncertain, so this microorganism is still under investigation. Mainly at the pediatric level, blastocystosis is studied with greater attention, due to the fact that it stands out over other agents in various studies carried out worldwide and in Mexico. The objective of this work was to show the frequency and its parasitic transition as the most prevalent agent today through a bibliographic review, despite the fact that it is not associated with clinical symptoms.

Palavras-chave : Blastocystis infections; protozoan infections; intestinal diseases; emergent; Mexico.
