Tinidazole or metronidazole was administered at random to 56 patients with symptomatic intestinal amoebiasis. The dose of each drug given was 2 g once daily for 3 consecutive days. Tinidazole cured 92.6% patients (25/27) and metronidazole 58.6% patients (17/29). The difference was statistically significant (p less than 0.01). Tinidazole was better tolerated compared with metronidazole.
