Some species, amibse principally to the Acanthamoeba and Naegleria genera are able to parasitize humans. In immunocompetent individuals, the Naegleria fowleri species is responsible for meningoencephalitis, the evolution of which is rapidly fatal. Contamination occurs though bathing in warm fresh waters. Treatment relies on administration of amphotericin B. The Acanthamoeba genus, which encompasses about 20 species, leads to potentially severe ocular disease keratitis in immunocompetent individuals infected through the use of contaminated contact lenses or through trauma.
In immunosuppressed individuals, contamination leads to chronic disease, granulomatous encephalitis also reported in association with species of the Balamuthia genus and other problems including cardiac, cutaneous and pulmonary manifestations, all of which influence the prognosis.
