We carry out a review of the world literature, regarding the role played by the Intestinal Microbiota (IM), when transplanted - in the decrease and disappearance of diarrhea, in many conditions. Some acute and most chronic. Also, we show our little experience regarding the effect of Intestinal Microbiota Transplant (IMT), also known as Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT). We refer to how patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diarrhea variety, Anxiety, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Pseudomembranous Colitis, Intestinal Malabsorption Syndrome, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Retroperitoneal Cancer operated on 4 occasions, secondary to left seminoma and right testicular teratoma (excised). We show that in all of them, the diarrhea was reduced substantially and that the complications that appeared were minimal; without relevance or significant effect.
