Objective: Entamoeba gingivalis is an amoeba that present in the human cavity. The aim of the study was the detection and the effect of ethanolic extracts of Propolis on Entamoeba gingivalis amongst patient with periodontitis in vitro. Method: A total samples of 86 periodontitis patients were examined from March to August 2013.Oral swabs were collected from the tooth surface, they were respectively examined using the wet mount technique and eosin stain and examined under the microscope. Ethanolic extract of Propolis was prepared in different concentrations to test it on Entamoeba gingivalis in vitro. The Results: Out of 86samples, only 37 (43 %) was infected with Entamoeba gingivalis, in which 27 (31.4 %) were from male and 10(11.6 %) from female. The age ranging (30-40) was highest frequent with Entamoeba gingivalis, also we found the prevalence of infection was higher among smoker than nonsmokers, it was 30.2% of smoker patients in compares with 12.8% in non-smoker patients. The results of this study show increase the risk of gingivitis disease with diabetes.
