    Question 12: Toxoplasma cyst is found in cat stools
    Question 22: even if the protozoon that causes dysenteric symptoms is E. Histolytica by definition Balantidium Coli (class ciliophora) gives 15 stools per day which are mucous, liquid or even bloody and are associated with nausea, abdominal discomfort, weight loss and in sever cases, fever and prostation.
    Question 29: Schistosomiasis can give lymphadenopathy in cases of schistosoma mansoni or japonicum parassitosis; just schistosoma haematobium is more likly to induce "Urinary bilharziasis" also known as " vesical schistosomiasis".
    Question 38: Cerebral malaria is also found in chronic states of P. vivax infections.
    Question 45: for what I know, P. Falciparum also does.
