Giardia lamblia is a flagellated protozoan parasite that infects mammalian gastrointestinal tracts and causes giardiasis, a type of gastroenteritis that manifests itself with severe diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Giardia lamblia infection is transmitted by consuming contaminated food or water, or through mammalian feces. The Giardia protozoan can not survive in an environment outside of the host, so it is spread as a cyst, which can live in the environment for up to a month, and enters its trophozoite active form after infection. After the feeding stage, the Giardia trophozoite undergoes asexual replication through longitudinal binary fission. The resulting trophozoites and cysts then pass through the digestive system in the feces. The trophozoite form of Giardia can be recognized by its large karyosome and lack of peripheral chromatin, while the cyst form contains four nuclei and a retracted cytoplasm.
