The potential significance of giardiasis in terms of public health impact has become increasingly evident in recent years, Giardia lamblia has now been identified as a causative agent of waterborne, foodborne, and sexually transmitted infectious diarrhea. Although asymptomatic disease is common, manifestations of giardiasis may be sufficiently severe to require hospitalization. Severity, as well as prevalence, of the disease has been associated with immunodeficiencies. Nutritional consequences may occur in asymptomataic as well as symptomatic individuals.
