Natural History

Persons with diarrhea usually recover completely, although it may be several months before their bowel habits are entirely normal.

Complications

Prognosis

With correct treatment, most cases of amoebic and bacterial dysentery subside within ten days, and most individuals will achieve a full recovery within two to four weeks after beginning proper treatment. If the disease is left untreated, the prognosis varies with the immune status of the individual patient and the severity of disease. Extreme dehydration can prolong recovery and significantly raises the risk for serious complications.[1]
