ABSTRACT
"nIn a survey from 1999 to 2001, a total of 354 samples of soil and water were colleted from different areas and examined for the presence of Acanthamoeba and Naegleria spp. After sieving, filtration and centrifugation, samples were examined for the free living protozoa ( amphizoic amoeba ). Concurrently, a sediment of each sample was cultured in the non-nutrient agar medium enriched by E.coli. In the end, 10 Acanthomoeba spp. and 3 Naegleria sp. were isolated. Besides, we diagnosed one case of human Acanthomoeba infection in a person residing in the area.
