Molecular tools have the potential to differentiate microscopically similar gut micro-eukaryotes that may have significantly different relationships with the human host. Using broad range Entamoeba primers to amplify a section of the eukaryotic 18S small subunit ribosomal RNA gene a novel member of the Entamoeba family (Entamoeba bangladeshi) has recently been identified. The goal of this review is to place this species in the context of what is already known about this genus and to discuss the tools and data needed to elucidate the host-microbe relationship.
