The pathogenesis of shigellosis or bacillary dysentery involve colonization, invade the epithelial cell in the lining of the colon, causing severe inflammation, due to Shigella cells grow and multiply intracellularly and spread to neighboring epithelial cells; after that ulceration, hemorrhage and tissue demolition were occurred in last stage of shigellosis is the death of the cells that lining the colon and fibrosis of the colonic mucosa region, all these symptoms associated with abdominal pain and this sore results in the severe bloody diarrhea and may contain mucus, or pus.

A previous study displayed that the sensitivity of GenoType MTBDR plus for detection of MTB increased as the smear grade increased, reflecting an association between assay sensitivity and sputum bacillary burden.[sup][28] Several studies have shown that the sensitivities and specificities of drug resistance detection in culture samples are slightly higher than for those conducted in sputum-positive samples.[sup][18],[29] Previous study showed that most invalid results were in sputum specimens with a lower bacillary load (1+) or culture-negative samples.
In both cases of this report, general symptoms of bacillary dysentery including abdominal discomfort, pallor, dehydration, and passage of blood tinged stool containing mucus have helped us to promptly investigate the clinical illness.
