Bacillary Dysentery 细菌性痢疾
Patient: Doctor, I have had a terrible diarrhea for two days.
Doctor: What are your stools like? Watery or soft? Is there blood or mucus in the stool?
医生: 你的粪便是什么样的? 水泻还是软便? 有没有血和粘液？
Patient: Watery with blood and mucus.
Doctor: How frequent are they each day?
Patient: They are very frequent. I don't know how many.
Doctor: Do you have a temperature?
Patient: I feel hot and sometimes shivery.
Doctor: Have you had any abdominal pain?
Patient: Yes, I have lower abdominal cramps.
Doctor: Give a stool specimen to the laboratory, please. I'll wait for the results.
Doctor: The stool shows blood, mucus and pus as well as some ascaris eggs. It looks like bacillary dysentery, I'd like to send a stool specimen for culture.
Patient: Is it serious?
Doctor: It isn't serious. I'll give you furazolidone, which is very effective. You should have a complete rest and drink large amounts of fluids, otherwise you will be dehydrated. You should have a liquid or semi-liquid diet, easily digestible. Eat small quantities frequently. Avoid spicy, fibrous residue or greasy foods for a few days. It's an infectious disease. You should wash your hands thoroughly after going to the toilet.
Patient: Thank you, I will follow your advice.
