A disease involving
the inflammation of the lining of the large intestines. The inflammation
causes stomach pains and diarrhoea. Some cases involve vomiting and fever.
The bacteria enters the body through the mouth in food or water, and also
by human faeces and contact with infected people. The diarrhoea causes
people suffering from dysentery to lose important salts and fluids from
the body. This can be fatal if the body dehydrates.
