Photo 1. Scanning electron micrograph of Giardia lamblia in jejunal biopsy. Severe infection with G. lamblia can result in partial villous atrophy of the duodenum or jejunum with resulting steatorrhoea. Although the organism is commensal in many individuals, it is considered particularly pathogenic in children in the New World, and is a cause of diarrhoea and a malabsorption syndrome in travellers.
