Cyclospora cayetanensis: a review, focusing on the outbreaks of cyclosporiasis in the 1990s. (1/54)

Cyclospora cayetanensis, a coccidian parasite that causes protracted, relapsing gastroenteritis, has a short recorded history. In retrospect, the first 3 documented human cases of Cyclospora infection were diagnosed in 1977 and 1978. However, not much was published about the organism until the 1990s. One of the surprises has been the fact that a parasite that likely requires days to weeks outside the host to become infectious has repeatedly caused foodborne outbreaks, including large multistate outbreaks in the United States and Canada. In this review, I discuss what has been learned about this enigmatic parasite since its discovery and what some of the remaining questions are. My focus is the foodborne and waterborne outbreaks of cyclosporiasis that were documented from 1990 through 1999. The occurrence of the outbreaks highlights the need for health care personnel to consider that seemingly isolated cases of infection could be part of widespread outbreaks and should be reported to public health officials. Health care personnel should also be aware that stool specimens examined for ova and parasites usually are not examined for Cyclospora unless such testing is specifically requested and that Cyclospora infection is treatable with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.  (+info)

Viability of Giardia intestinalis cysts and viability and sporulation state of Cyclospora cayetanensis oocysts determined by electrorotation. (2/54)

Electrorotation is a noninvasive technique that is capable of detecting changes in the morphology and physicochemical properties of microorganisms. Electrorotation studies are reported for two intestinal parasites, Giardia intestinalis and Cyclospora cayetanensis. It is concluded that viable and nonviable G. intestinalis cysts can be differentiated by this technique, and support for this conclusion was obtained using a fluorogenic vital dye assay and morphological indicators. The viability of C. cayetanensis oocysts (for which no vital dye assay is currently available) can also be determined by electrorotation, as can their sporulation state. Modeling of the electrorotational response of these organisms was used to determine their dielectric properties and to gain an insight into the changes occurring within them. Electrorotation offers a new, simple, and rapid method for determining the viability of parasites in potable water and food products and as such has important healthcare implications.  (+info)

Outbreak of cyclosporiasis associated with basil in Missouri in 1999. (3/54)

During the summer of 1999, an outbreak of cyclosporiasis occurred among attendees of 2 events held on 24 July in different counties in Missouri. We conducted retrospective cohort studies of the 2 clusters of cases, which comprised 62 case patients. The chicken pasta salad served at one event (relative risk [RR], 4.25; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.80-10.01) and the tomato basil salad served at the other event (RR, 2.95; 95% CI, 1.72-5.07) were most strongly associated with illness. The most likely vehicle of infection was fresh basil, which was included in both salads and could have been grown either in Mexico or the United States. Leftover chicken pasta salad was found to be positive for Cyclospora DNA by means of polymerase chain reaction analysis, and 1 sporulated Cyclospora oocyst was found by use of microscopy. This is the second documented outbreak of cyclosporiasis in the United States linked to fresh basil and the first US outbreak for which Cyclospora has been detected in an epidemiologically implicated food item.  (+info)

The contrasting epidemiology of Cyclospora and Cryptosporidium among outpatients in Guatemala. (4/54)

We compared epidemiologic characteristics of Cryptosporidium and Cyclospora in surveillance data from outpatient departments in Guatemala. Routinely-submitted stool specimens were screened by microscopy. Age, sex, and symptom data were collected. Cyclospora was detected in 117 (2.1%) and Cryptosporidium in 67 (1.2%) of 5,520 specimens. The prevalence of Cyclospora peaked in the warmer months, while Cryptosporidium was most common in the rainy season. Both affected children more than adults, but Cryptosporidium affected children at a younger age than Cyclospora (median age 2 years versus 5 years; P < 0.001). Cyclospora showed a stronger association with diarrhea than Cryptosporidium, even when data were stratified by age. These contrasts may reflect differences in the relative importance of transmission modes, the frequency of exposure, and the development of immunity.  (+info)

Cyclospora cayetanensis in three populations at risk in Guatemala. (5/54)

In 1996 and 1997, outbreaks of Cyclospora cayetanensis in North America were linked to Guatemalan raspberries. From April 1999 to April 2000, we undertook a survey for C. cayetanensis in raspberry farm workers, malnourished children, and human immunodeficiency virus and AIDS patients in Guatemala. Stool samples were analyzed using ethylacetate-formalin concentration, wet preparation, modified acid-fast staining method, and epifluorescence. Oocysts were found in 1.5% of the subjects, none of whom were raspberry farm workers.  (+info)

Cyclospora cayetanensis infections among diarrheal patients from Venezuela. (6/54)

The prevalence and importance of Cyclospora cayetanensis as an enteropathogen among 71 patients (22-45 years old) with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and 132 children with diarrhea (0-12 years old) from Venezuela was assessed retrospectively. Two to three stool samples from each patient attending our parasitology laboratory for parasitologic and medical assistance were examined. For identification of the coccidium, modified Ziehl-Neelsen carbolfuchsin staining of formalin-ether stool concentrates was used, and for other intestinal parasites, iron-hematoxylin-stained smears and formalin-ether concentrates were examined. Cyclospora oocysts were found in seven (9.8%) of 71 AIDS patients and seven (5.3%) of 132 children with diarrhea. Other pathogenic parasites were present in most of the patients (9 of 14, 64.3%) shedding oocysts. Cyclosporiasis predominated in children 2-5 years of age with respect to those < or = one year of age (P < 0.05). The findings suggest that C. cayetanensis is common in diarrheal patients from Venezuela. However, the role of the parasite as the causal agent of diarrhea in these patients is uncertain.  (+info)

Histologic proof of acalculous cholecystitis due to Cyclospora cayetanensis. (7/54)

It is suspected that Cyclospora cayetanensis can infect the biliary tract in persons with human immunodeficiency virus infection, but histologic proof has never been published. We report a case of acalculous cholecystitis in a person with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who required cholecystectomy and demonstrated C. cayetanensis in the gallbladder epithelium.  (+info)

Epidemiologic differences between cyclosporiasis and cryptosporidiosis in Peruvian children. (8/54)

We compared the epidemiologic characteristics of cyclosporiasis and cryptosporidiosis in data from a cohort study of diarrhea in a periurban community near Lima, Peru. Children had an average of 0.20 episodes of cyclosporiasis/year and 0.22 episodes of cryptosporidiosis/year of follow-up. The incidence of cryptosporidiosis peaked at 0.42 for 1-year-old children and declined to 0.06 episodes/child-year for 5- to 9-year-old children. In contrast, the incidence of cyclosporiasis was fairly constant among 1- to 9-year-old children (0.21 to 0.28 episodes/child-year). Likelihood of diarrhea decreased significantly with each episode of cyclosporiasis; for cryptosporidiosis, this trend was not statistically significant. Both infections were more frequent during the warm season (December to May) than the cooler season (June to November). Cryptosporidiosis was more frequent in children from houses without a latrine or toilet. Cyclosporiasis was associated with ownership of domestic animals, especially birds, guinea pigs, and rabbits.  (+info)

By: James Peacock. Utilizing their Health Alert Network (HAN), the CDC recently sent out a warning to consumers and healthcare workers to be on the lookout for Cyclospora infections this summer. According to the CDC report, there have been 206 Cyclospora infections between May 1 and August 2, 2017. This is more than double the amount of cases that took place in that same timeframe last year, which was 88. These 206 cases of illness have been reported from 27 different states, most of which have reported only a small number of infections. Eighteen instances of hospitalization have been reported, and there have not been any deaths. There have not been any source for these infections found, and there is little evidence at this point that points towards whether or not the Cyclospora infections are connected or independent. While many different states have reported Cyclospora infections, by far the hardest hit state appears to be Texas.. Cyclospora in Texas. The Texas Department of State Health ...
Cyclospora cayetanensis is a protozoan that causes disease in humans, and perhaps primates. It has been linked in the United States to fecally contaminated imported produce, and was virtually unknown before about 1990, but has been on the rise since. The health risk associated with the disease is usually confined to adult foreigners visiting regions where the species is endemic and acquiring the infection; consequently, C. cayetanensis is a cause of travelers diarrhea. This species was placed in the Cyclospora genus because of the spherical shape of its sporocysts. The species name refers to the Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, where early epidemiological and taxonomic work was done. The first published report of Cyclospora cayetanensis in humans appears to be by Ashford (1979), who found unidentified Isospora-like coccidia in the feces of three individuals in Papua, New Guinea. The photomicrographs in the paper reveal an organism morphologically identical to that we see now. Later, ...
Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by the parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis. People can become infected with Cyclospora by consuming food or water contaminated with the parasite; it is not transmitted directly from one person to another person. The most common symptom of cyclosporiasis is watery diarrhea, which can be profuse. Other common symptoms include anorexia, fatigue, weight loss, nausea, flatulence, abdominal cramping, and myalgia; vomiting and low-grade fever may also occur.. Symptoms of cyclosporiasis begin an average of 7 days (range: 2 days to ≥2 weeks) after ingestion of the parasite. If untreated, the illness may last for a few days to a month or longer, and may have a remitting- relapsing course. The treatment of choice for cyclosporiasis is trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX). No effective alternative treatments have yet been identified for persons who are allergic to or cannot tolerate TMP/SMX, thus observation and symptomatic care is recommended for these ...

Cyclospora cayetanensis is a coccidium which has been identified in diarrheal feces or immunocompetent individuals or in AIDS patients. The main aspects related to its epidemiology and pathogeny have not been solved so far, as well as the possibility of human infection by this protozoan being a zoonosis. We describe in this work the first case identifying the Cyclospora in dogs. Our findings, notwithstanding their preliminary characteristics, could suggest that besides untreated water, other transmission means, along with contact with dogs, there could be important factors in the human diarrhea associated with Cyclospora.

Abstract A detailed chronology of unsuccessful efforts to diagnose and treat a sudden-onset case of chronic diarrhea acquired in Jakarta Indonesia, and ultimately attributed to Cyclospora is presented. A modified Kato technique was used to quantify Cyclospora oocysts during successive days prior to, during, and after successful cotrimoxazole therapy (160 mg of trimethoprim, 800 mg sulfamethoxazole twice a day for seven days) for this infection. Cyclospora was associated with 6.4% of the gastrointestinal illness and/or diarrhea cases that presented during a seven-month period to a Jakarta clinic that serves a small population of expatriates. Cyclospora and Giardia lamblia were identified with equal frequency during this period and were the dominant pathogenic intestinal parasite species found in this community.
To determine prevalence of Cyclospora cayetanensis infection in Henan, China, we conducted a study of 11,554 hospital patients. Prevalence was 0.70% (95% confidence interval 0.70% ± 0.15%), with all age groups infected. Most cases were found in the summer. Minor sequence polymorphisms were observed in the 18S rRNA gene of 35 isolates characterized ...
Most infections are acquired during travel to countries where this parasite is endemic such as in Central and South America and Asia. However, nearly every year in the spring and summer, BC residents are affected by outbreaks of Cyclospora infection. These local outbreaks have been linked to eating contaminated, imported fresh produce, especially leafy green vegetables (e.g. lettuce), fresh herbs (e.g. basil and cilantro) and berries (e.g. raspberries and blackberries). ...
At that time the agency reported 206 people in 27 states had been confirmed with cyclosporiasis caused by the Cyclospora cayetanensis parasite.. Before its over, the outbreak is likely to exceed 1,000 victims. Illnesses that began after Aug. 2 may not yet have been reported to CDC because of the lag time between a victims first doctor visit, lab tests, paperwork and finally reports being filed with public health agencies.. The most recent update from CDC did not include information about the number of victims who have been hospitalized or whether any have died. In its Aug. 7 alert, the agency reported 18 people had required hospitalization. No deaths had been reported at that point.. At this time, no specific vehicle of interest has been identified, and investigations to identify a potential source, or sources, of infection are ongoing.

We evaluated the incidence of Cyclospora cayetanensis in immunocompetent, diarrheic patients during the summers of 2006-2009 in Istanbul. Stools from 1876 patients were examined using microscopic techniques. Cyclospora oocysts were observed in wet preparations by light and epifluorescence microscopy and in fecal smears that were stained by Kinyouns modified acid-fast stain. Characteristic Cyclospora oocysts were observed in 2 patients in 2006, 17 in 2007, and one in 2009. Samples positive for Cyclospora were further analyzed by a single step polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with Cyclospora-specific primers from the ITS-1 region of the genome. The majority of the Cyclospora positive cases (15) were clustered during about 15 days in June 2007, indicating an unusual incidence of cyclosporiasis in this time period. The climatic characteristics of 2007 could have played a role in this high occurrence rate.

People are infected by ingesting food or water infected with the parasite. As Cyclospora is not endemic in Canada, most reported cases in Ontario are infected when visiting an endemic country (e.g., countries in the Caribbean, South and Central America, South and South East Asia). However, when cases occur in individuals who did not travel, an investigation is launched. Most outbreaks in Ontario occur in the spring and summer and outbreaks of locally-acquired infections have been related to produce such as berries or herbs imported from Cyclospora endemic countries. The infection is unlikely to spread from person to person.. ...

The first known human cases of Cyclospora infection (cyclosporiasis) were reported in 1979.. Who gets cyclosporiasis? People of all ages can get this infection. Although travelers to tropical countries may be at increased risk from exposure to contaminated water or food, the disease also occurs in the United States. The risk may vary with season; cases are reported year-round, but the majority of cases and outbreaks are reported during the spring and summer months. Persons who have previously been infected with Cyclospora can become infected again.. How is cyclosporiasis spread? The disease can be spread when a form of the Cyclospora parasite that can make someone sick enters the body through the mouth. People with cyclosporiasis pass the parasite in their feces (stool), but that form of the parasite ...
Cyclospora cayetanensis Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by an infection with a microscopic one-celled parasite named Cyclospora cayetanensis. The first known human cases of cyclosporiasis were reported in 1979. People can become infected with Cyclospora by consuming food or water contaminated with the parasite. People traveling to countries where the disease is endemic may be at increased risk for infection.
An outbreak of cyclosporiasis occurred in attendees of a wedding reception held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on June 10, 2000. In a retrospective cohort study, 54 (68.4%) of the 79 interviewed guests and members of the wedding party met the case definition. The wedding cake, which had a cream filling that included raspberries, was the food item most strongly associated with illness (multivariate relative risk, 5.9; 95% confidence interval, 3.6 to 10.5). Leftover cake was positive for Cyclospora DNA by polymerase chain reaction analyses. Sequencing of the amplified fragments confirmed that the organism was Cyclospora cayetanensis. The year 2000 was the fifth year since 1995 that outbreaks of cyclosporiasis definitely or probably associated with Guatemalan raspberries have occurred in the spring in North America. Additionally, this is the second documented U.S. outbreak, and the first associated with raspberries, for which Cyclospora has been detected in the epidemiologically implicated food item.

Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by the parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis (C. cayetanensis), which only occurs in humans, and the most common symptom is diarrhea.
In recent years, human cyclosporiasis has emerged as an important infection, with large outbreaks in the United States and Canada. Understanding the biology and epidemiology of Cyclospora has been difficult and slow and has been complicated by not knowing the pathogen s origins, animal reservoirs (if any), and relationship to other coccidian parasites. This report provides morphologic and molecular characterization of three parasites isolated from primates and names each isolate: Cyclospora cercopitheci sp.n. for a species recovered from green monkeys, C. colobi sp.n. for a parasite from colobus monkeys, and C. papionis sp.n. for a species infecting baboons. These species, plus C. cayetanensis, which infects humans, increase to four the recognized species of Cyclospora infecting primates. These four species group homogeneously as a single branch intermediate between avian and mammalian Eimeria.

Cyclosporiasis: Infection with parasitic protozoa of the genus CYCLOSPORA. It is distributed globally and causes a diarrheal illness. Transmission is waterborne.
Cyclosporiasis is caused by a one-celled parasite in the genus Cyclospora. It is a gastrointestinal disorder caused by contaminated food or water.
A 63-year-old Ohio woman is among at least 285 people sickened in an outbreak of intestinal illness that has affected residents of 11 states. Cyclospora infections were first reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in late June. At least 18 people have been hospitalized with cyclosporiasis, an intestinal illness caused by a microscopic parasite.
ATLANTA - Preliminary surveillance data for incidents of foodborne illness show that 2018 was not a good year. Incidents of Campylobacter, Salmonella and Cyclospora infections increased last year, according to FoodNet 2018 preliminary data released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention report. CDC explained the increases were due, in part, to more infections being diagnosed using culture-independent diagnostic tests (CIDTs), but the agency noted the possibility that the number of infections actually is increasing. Campylobacter infections were the commonly identified infection in . . .

The first known cyclospora outbreak of the 2020 season in the U.S. linked to ALDI, Hy-Vee, and Jewel-Osco salads has sickened at least 122 people in 7 states, as of June 23, 2020. Nineteen people have been hospitalized. Where were those bagged salads linked to cyclospora illnesses sold? Are people in other states at risk? While there are illness in just seven of the twelve states where the salads were sold, people living in the states without an outbreak still need to discard those products and should monitor their health for the symptoms of cyclosporiasis if they ate them. And its important to know that the FDA says that these products could have been distributed to more states and retailers than are currently known.

Donna Heller thought she had cancer. But multiple visits to the doctor after a month with debilitating nausea and diarrhea didnt yield any answers. Convinced she was dying, she met with her lawyer to get her will in order.Then she saw a television report about an outbreak of cyclospora possibly linked to bagged salad mix. The stomach illness matched all her symptoms and is easily treatable with antibiotics. She told her doctor she suspected that could be the cause, and tests showed she was right.
We used the Environment Health Risk Assessment framework to assess the health risks due to Pb and Cd in tilapia and water spinach caught/harvested along the Nhue River, in Kim Bang, Ha Nam in 2013. In total, 81 samples of water, tilapia and water spinach (27 of each) were taken from Nhue River and analysed for lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) pollution. 142 consumers were interviewed regarding the consumption levels of tilapia and water spinach. The analysis found that 100% samples of water spinach were contaminated with Pb and Cd; 100% and 96.3% of the tilapia samples were contaminated with Pb and Cd. The concentrations of Pb and Cd in water spinach were in the ranges of 29 - 385 µg/kg and 0.79 - 27 µg/kg. Their ranges in tilapia samples were 15 - 389 µg/kg and 0.12 - 8.8 µg/kg. The average consumptions of water spinach and tilapia were estimated at 108.9 g per meal and 132 g per meal, respectively. Local residents consumed 75 water spinach meals per year, therefore Pb and Cd intakes were 13.6 ...
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Health officials say two Kansas cases are tied to the cyclospora outbreak that has sickened 372 people in 15 states.. A spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Tuesday one patient is from Phillips County, located on the Nebraska border in north-central Kansas. The other patient lives in Johnson County, in the Kansas City metro area.. The spokeswoman, Miranda Steele, says officials believe both illnesses were caused by food eaten in Nebraska.. Iowa and Nebraska health officials say that a prepackaged salad mix is the source of an outbreak of the stomach bug in those two states. Steele says there is no indication the salad mix was distributed in Kansas.. Cyclospora is a rare parasite that causes a lengthy gastrointestinal illness with diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms.. ...

draft guidance document. Health Canada also shared the document with selected international counterparts in June 2010. Once finalized, the document will be used by Health Canada, CFIA and PHAC during outbreak investigations.. I look forward to the public availability of such a document, 14 years after the feds were criticized for the erroneous implication of California strawberries rather than Guatemalan raspberries as the source of a 1996 North America-wide cyclospora outbreak.. The Weatherill Report makes a number of recommendations to improve communication between government and the public on food safety and foodborne illness. The Government has taken steps to improve how and when it communicates with Canadians in general and with at-risk populations and key stakeholders, specifically. These steps take into consideration how it communicates food safety information in periods when there is no outbreak as well as during a national foodborne illness event.. In February 2010, the Government of ...
Aim. In patients with HIV infection, diarrhea, often associated with getting thin and weight loss, is important for their nutritional state and quality of life, since these patients have a greater degree of immunosuppression than those without diarrhea, predisposing the gastrointestinal tract to the action of bacterial, viral, protozoa and fungal pathogens which may cause morbidity and death. These patients are particularly susceptible to protozoa infections. Cryptosporidium infection is among the most common causes of enteric disease but Micro-sporidium and Cyclospora are emerging as potentially important enteric pathogens ...
The statistics were calculated from an assortment of sources, some of them new. One of the most promising, the Food-borne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), is a collaborative effort of the CDC, the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration, specifically designed to measure these illnesses. Yet FoodNet tracks only seven out of the 28 pathogens included in these numbers, and those 28 represent only a fraction of the 200 known diseases transmitted through food. PulseNet, another innovation, can compare strains genetically, thus linking apparently random cases that may be part of wider outbreaks.. Tracking food-borne disease is also complicated by the number of illnesses thought to be caused by unknown pathogens. For example, only 20 years ago Listeria, E. coli O157:H7, Campylobacter and Cyclospora, all of which have caused recent outbreaks, were not known to cause foodborne illness. New pathogens also emerge as people change how, where and what they eat, and as ...
