Giardia lamblia

  • C. Schieferstein

Zusammenfassung

Im Jahre 1681 entdeckte Leeuwenhoek im eigenen diarrhöischen Stuhl zum ersten Mal Parasiten, deren Beschreibung ähnlich der heute als Giardia lamblia bezeichneten Parasiten ist. Detailliert beschrieben und klassifiziert wurden diese Parasiten erstmals von Lambl im Jahre 1859, von Blanchard 1888 und Stile 1915. Die Erkrankung und das ursächliche Agens wurden benannt zu Ehren des französischen Biologen und Parasitologen Alfred Giard (Salfelder 1987).
