This disease comes in two types; amebic and bacillary dysentery. Amebic is caused by amoeba and is the worst because it can survive outside the human body and spread to others. Bacillary dysentery is caused by shigella and can be mild, severe, or deadly. Bacillary dysentery will kill children who obtain it under the age of five, but for an adult, it just comes and goes.
