Diarrheal disease of debilitated or immunodeficient foals, caused by a protozoan, Cryptosporidium parvum.
a disease caused by the protozoan Cryptosporidium parvum, which is most commonly transmitted to humans by contact with animal feces, ingestion of contaminated food or water, or oral-anal sexual contact.
Caused by the protozoan parasite Cryptosporidium parvum, found in the intestines of animals. May be transmitted to humans by direct contact with an infected animal, by eating contaminated food, or by drinking contaminated water. The parasite grows in the intestines and may cause severe chronic diarrhoea in people with advanced HIV disease.
a disease caused by the protozoan Cryptosporidium parvum, which is transmitted by contact with animal feces, ingestion of contaminated food or water, or oral/anal sexual contact. It can cause severe, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, and lymph node swelling.
Infection with the gut parasite Cryptosporidium parvum and other species, causing severe diarrhoea.
A disease of humans caused by the ingestion of Cryptosporidium oocysts.
An infection caused by a protozoan parasite found in the intestines of animals. Once transmitted to man, it lodges in the intestines and causes severe diarrhea.
a coccidian infection of humans, domestic animals and other vertebrates
An infection caused by a protozoan parasite found in the intestines of animals: it may be transmitted to humans by direct contact with an infected animal or by ingestion of contaminated food or water. The parasite grows in the intestine and causes severe chronic diarrhea in persons with HIV.
an infection caused by an intestinal parasite, transmitted through the ingestion of food or water contaminated with animal feces.
Diarrhoeal disease caused by oocysts of the protozoa Cryptosporidium parvum.
an infection caused by the protozoa parasite, Cryptosporidium parvum.
refers to a parasitic infection that causes minor diarrhea in persons with normal immune systems, but in the setting of AIDS, cryptosporidiosis can cause severe, chronic watery diarrhea that can kill
An infection whose main symptom is prolonged diarrhea which leads to weight loss. All treatments for this illness are still experimental.
A gastrointestinal infection caused by the enteric protozoan ryptosporidium, usually through waterborne transmission and resulting in symptoms of gastroenteritis. The most common sources of this protozoan include domestic animals (e.g., cattle, sheep), contaminated recreational waters, drinking water treatment systems, and well and spring water.
an opportunistic infection caused by the intestinal parasite Cryptosporidium parvum, a very common parasite in animals. Transmission occurs through ingestion of food or water contaminated with animal faeces. The parasite grows in the intestines and bile ducts and causes severe, chronic diarrhoea, especially in people with AIDS. page top
An organism that proliferates in the small intestine.
a diarrheal infection caused by the parasite Cryptosporidium. The parasite is transmitted after drinking or swallowing contaminated food or water, including water swallowed while swimming.
a disease caused by waterborne parasites that can be fatal for immunosuppressed individuals.
a gastrointestinal disease caused by the microscopic protozoan parasite Cryptosporidium parvum. It is recognized as one of the three most common diarrhea-causing intestinal pathogens in the world. Transmission occurs by the oral- fecal route.
(crip-toe-spor-ID-ee-OH-sis): The illness produced by infection with Cryptosporidium. The most common symptoms of this disease including fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, abdominal cramping, and watery diarrhea. These symptoms usually begin two to ten days after infection and generally last two weeks or less. Cryptosporidiosis in individuals with weakened immune systems is a more severe disease.
Cryptosporidiosis is a parasitic disease affecting the intestines of mammals that is caused by Cryptosporidium, a protozoan parasite in the phylum Apicomplexa. It is a disease spread through the fecal-oral route; the main symptom is self-limiting diarrhea in people with intact immune system. In immunocompromised individuals, such as AIDS patients, infection can cause permanent & life-threatening diarrhea.
