  • Preservative fluid is Bayer’s solution or Methiolate-Iodine-Formalin. Only formed stools can be refrigerated at 4’C for an overnight.
  • Colour – Disease.
  • Importance of these types.
  • Indole, Sketole, Mercaptans, H2S.
  • Explain Concentration method/Cover slip method.
  • Eggs – Worms, Cysts – Protozoa.
  • To detect Entamoeba, the fecal specimen must be kept at body temperature until it can be examined.
  • As there are a large number of bacterial species that can cause diarrhea, many different selective culture media will be used in order to increase the isolation rate.
  • Guaic test in Hutchison’s.
  • Here explain wat is RS, its mechanisms……..

    1. 1. Guided by Presented by Dr. R K Hibare Dr. Madhusudan B G Prof & HOD, Dept of Roga Nidana I MD, Dept of Roga Nidana GAMC, Bengaluru GAMC, Bengaluru
    2. 2. DEFINITION Human feces is called as STOOL. Faeces / Feces is plural of latin term faex meaning RESIDUE. It is the waste residue of indigestible materials of an animal’s digestive tract expelled through the anus during defecation. Meconium is newborn’s first feces. SCATOLOGY or CAPROLOGY is the study of feces.
    3. 3. COMPOSITION • • • • • • ¾ Water, ¼ Solid Undigested and Unabsorbed food Intestinal secretions, Mucous Bile pigments and Salts Bacteria and Inorganic material Epithelial cells, Leukocytes
    4. 4. COLLECTION • Universal Precautions • Stool should be collected in a dry, sterilized, wide mouthed container. • It should be uncontaminated with Urine or any other body secretions. • Properly named and always a fresh sample should be tested.
    5. 5. M A C R O S C O P I C E X A M I N AT I O N • • • • • • Volume <200gms/day Colour Consistency Odour Blood, Mucous Parts of parasite and Adult Parasite
    6. 6. COLOUR OF STOOL Human fecal matter is normally yellowish brown in colour which results from a combination of bile and bilirubin. VARIATIONS Bright Red/Maroon Tan/Clay Blood streak White Yellow Pale greasy Green Black Blue
    7. 7. COLOUR OF FECES-in Infants Exclusively breast fed infants pass loose and green or pasty and yellow stools. Infants fed on cows’ milk preparations pass stools of a paler yellow colour and of a much firmer consistency. Babies fed on newer modified cows’ milk preparations have clay coloured or greenish stools. Some healthy children may pass frequent, loose stools containing undigested vegetable matter called as Toddler’s diarrhoea.
    8. 8. CONSISTENCY OF STOOL Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass). Sausage-shaped but lumpy. Like a sausage but with cracks on the surface. Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft. Soft blobs with clear-cut edges. Fluffy pieces with ragged edges. Watery, no solid pieces. Entirely Liquid.
    9. 9. ODOUR OF STOOL Basically depends on the pH of the stool and INDOLE and SKETOLE are the substances that produce normal odour formed by Intestinal bacterial fermentation and putrefaction. A foul odour is caused by degradation of undigested protein and excessive carbohydrate intake. Sickly sweet odour is produced by undigested Lactose.
    10. 10. • Diarrhoea mixed with mucous and Blood is suggestive of Typhoid, Amoebiasis, Typhus, Large bowel Carcinoma. • Diarrhoea mixed with mucous and Pus is suggestive of Ulcerative Collitis, Regional Enteritis, Shigellosis, Salmonellosis, Acute diverticullitis, Intestinal TB. • Pasty stool with high fat content is suggestive of CBD Obstruction, Cystic fibrosis-butter stool. • Translucent gelatinous mucous clinging to the surface of the formed stool is found in Spastic Constipation, Excessive straining, Mucous collitis.
    11. 11. • Rice water stools which is colourless and almost devoid of odour is suggestive of Cholera. • Stools may look like Redcurrant jelly in Intussusception.

    15. 15. S L I D E P R E PA R AT I O N • • • • Saline Specimen Prpn. SLIDES Iodine Specimen Prpn. CONCENTRATION METHOD to detect Ova. A drop of warm Saline or Lugol’s Iodine is placed over a clean microscopic slide. About 2mg of stool sample should be taken and mixed with soln placed over the slide. Coverslip is placed avoiding air bubbles. Examined under Microscope.
    16. 16. PIN WORM EGG COLLECTION Eggs of Pin worm – Enterobius vermicularis rarely appear in stools. These are usually collected in the folds of skin in perianal region. COLLECTION Cotton swab / Plaster patch – Anus especially in early morning – Dipped in Saline – Observed.
    17. 17. E X A M I N AT I O N O F PA R A S I T E S Warm stools are best for detecting Ova or parasites. Do not refrigerate the specimen. Because of cyclic life cycle of parasites, three separate random stool specimens are recommended for examination.
    18. 18. N O R M A L VA L U E S • Undigested food materials – None to small amount • Starch – None • Eggs, Cysts, Parasitic fragments – None • Yeasts – None • Leukocytes – None
    19. 19. L E U KO C Y T E S I N S T O O L Large amounts of leukocytes is suggestive of Chronic Ulceratice Collitis, Chronic Bacillary Dysentry, Localised Abscess, Fistulas. Mononuclear Leukocytes appear in Typhoid. Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes appear in Shigellosis, Salmonellosis, Invasice E. coli diarrhoea, Ulceratice Collitis. Absent Leukocytes in Cholera, Viral diarrhoea, Non-specific diarrhoea, Amoebic Collitis, Giardiasis.

    27. 27. S T O O L C U LT U R E Normal Microbial flora of GI tract contains following organisms. Gram –ve - E. coli, Enterobacter, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacteroides. Gram +ve - Clostridia, Lactobacilli, Enterococci, Anaerobic streptococci. Human feces contain approximately 1011 organisms per gram wet weight as normal flora. Whereas gut bacterial pathogens rarely exceed 105 organisms per gram.
    28. 28. C U LT U R E M E D I A S Culture media usually used is of AGAR and is done aerobically. • • • • XLD Agar media – Salmonella, Shigella. TCBS Agar media– Cholera. MacConkey media – Yersinia enterocolitica Campylobacter culture media for Campylobacter species. The mainstay of diagnosis of bacterial infections of the gut is by culture.
    29. 29. HANGING DROP TEST •Place a drop stool in the centre of a coverslip. •Place a drop of water / vaseline at each corner of the coverslip. •Invert a slide with a central depression over the coverslip. •The coverslip will stick to the slide and when the slide is inverted the drop of bacterial culture will be suspended in the central depression of the slide. •Examine microscopically (X100) for motile organisms.
