Prognosis of Shigellosis

Prognosis of the bacillary dysentery or shigellosis is generally good and most patients make a full recovery.

However in patients who have low immunity children, elderly or patients with HIV infection, the prognosis is more guarded unless timely treatment is administered.

Diarrheal diseases are a major cause of deaths among the young children in the world from the developing countries.

In the event of complications like Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) developing the prognosis depends on the availability of support treatment like dialysis.

The prognosis of Shigellosis may depend on the duration of the disease, complications, result of the outcome, and the chances for recovery, time for recovery, survival and death rate. Therefore a prediction on the prognosis of shigellosis is not conclusively possible.
