    Cryptosporidiosis is recognized worldwide, primarily in neonatal calves but also in lambs, kids, foals, and piglets. Cryptosporidia cause varying degrees of naturally occurring diarrhea in neonatal farm animals. The parasites commonly act in concert with other enteropathogens to produce intestinal injury and diarrhea.   Cryptosporidium has a worldwide distribution (excepting Antarctica) ; Infection is usually person to person through the fecal-oral route, via ingestion of infective oocysts In some cases, zoonotic infection from sheep, cows, pigs, rodents, companion animals and .

      Cryptosporidium has emerged as an important cause of diarrheal illness worldwide, especially amongst young children and patients with infectious or iatrogenic immune deficiencies. The authors describe a case of mild cryptosporidiosis in a well-nourished, immunocompetent, one-year-old child. Rapid clinical and parasitological improvement was Cited by: 4. Cryptosporidium is now recognized as a common cause of childhood diarrhea in developing countries 81 and is being increasingly recognized as a cause of diarrhea in travelers to those areas. 82 For example, Cryptosporidium was the third most common cause of TD in military personnel deployed to an area known to have high rates of Cryptosporidium.

      Cryptosporidiosis is a disease usually caused by the parasites Cryptosporidium hominis and C. parvum. It is most commonly seen in . Definitive diagnosis of cryptosporidiosis must be accomplished by a trained veterinarian. Even so, diagnosis can sometimes be difficult. Microscopic identification of Cryptosporidia requires examination by a trained and experienced veterinarian or laboratory technician. At times, although definitive diagnosis may prove to be impossible, your veterinarian may make a tentative .
