This amoeba is rare, but it can cause severe infections of the eye, skin, and central nervous system. It can cause three major infections: acanthamoeba keratitis, GAE, and disseminated infection. Acanthamoeba keratitis is an infection in the eye that can cause permanent visual impairment in healthy people. GAE is a serious brain and spinal cord infection that occurs in immunocompromised individuals. Disseminated infection is a widespread infection that affects the skin, sinuses, lungs, and other organs, which is more common in immunocompromised individuals.

Symptoms of an infection are: watery diarrhea with possible blood cells, abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting, inflamed digestive tract, and general weakness. Most cases of campylobacter infections do not show symptoms, however, complications can occur, like a urinary tract infection or an abortion.

The standardized mortality ratio for cases infected domestically was 2.9 (95% CI: 1.9–4.0) within the first month following the illness (Ternhag et al, 2005)

There are two types of Coxsackievirus, Type A and Type B. Type A viruses cause blisters in the mouth, throat, hands, etc. (HFMD). It can also cause inflammation of the eyelids and white part of the eye. Type B causes fever, lung and abdominal pain, and headaches. It may be a cause for diabetes as well. Both types may cause meningitis and other diseases, but this is less likely.
