A strain of pathogenic Naegleria isolated from a human nasal swab.

Abstract

The 161A strain of Naegleria isolated from a human nasal swab and reported earlier was further studied for its growth pattern, cyst-wall appearance, cytopathic effect on primary monkey kidney cells, and pathogenicity in mice. Results obtained in the study establish the pathogenic status of this strain. This constitutes the first isolation of a pathogenic Naegleria from a human nasal cavity.
