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.

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.

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.

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 ...

Short Report: Case Report of Cyclospora Infection Acquired in Indonesia and Treated with Cotrimoxazole | The American Journal...
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.

High occurrence of cyclosporiasis in Istanbul, Turkey, during a dry and warm summer | Parasites & Vectors | Full Text
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.

More than 250 cases of Cyclospora infection have been reported in the United States since July 22, including two reported cases in Connecticut.
Agree about the cyclospora! Yikes! We ran over 80 Cyclospora tests yesterday, and were at a ~10% positivity rate. Sometimes the specimens are loaded and sometimes its just a few. Were picking them up on our modified safranin stain for Cyclospora (they stain red like on a modified acid fast stain) as well as on the O&P wet prep. When we see them on wet prep, we confirm them using the safranin stain. Perhaps I will include a Cyclospora case for you in the weeks :) ...

Cyclosporiasis FAQ. Cyclosporiasis What is cyclosporiasis? Cyclosporiasis is an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite called Cyclospora cayetanensis (SIGH-clo-SPORE-uh KYE-uh-tuh-NEN-sis). 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.
Table 1 - Outbreak of Cyclosporiasis Associated with Imported Raspberries, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 2000 - Volume 8, Number...
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 a parasitic infection of the small intestine caused by the protozoa Cyclospora cayetanensis. It usually causes a watery diarrheal illness that can last anywhere from nine to 43 days if left untreated. Increasing frequency of cyclosporiasis has been reported in the United States and Canada since the mid-1980s.. Cyclosporiasis is reportable to the Iowa Department of Public Health by Iowa Administrative Code 641 IAC 1.. ...

... can occur when a person ingests water or food that has been contaminated with the parasite. The infection can also be transmitted by a person putting something in his or her mouth that has been contaminated with infected stool (feces). Outbreaks in North America have been associated with various types of fresh produce. When passed in an infected persons stool, Cyclospora may require some time (days to weeks) in the environment before becoming infectious. It is therefore unlikely that cyclosporiasis is spread directly from one person to another.. ...

Assessment on lead and cadmium pollution in tilapia and water spinach cultivated in Nhue River related to human health risk in...
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.. ...

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 ...

The coccidian genera that cause disease in humans include Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Isospora, Sarcocystis, and Toxoplasma. What was previously called Cryptosporidium parvum and was thought to be the primary Cryptosporidium species infecting humans is now classified as two separate species, C. parvum (mammals, including humans) and Cryptosporidium hominis (primarily humans). Evidence obtained from excystation experiments indicates that the oocyst contains two sporocysts, each containing two sporozoites, a pattern which places these organisms in the coccidian genus Cyclospora. Electron microscopy (EM) confirmed the presence of characteristic organelles for coccidian organisms of the phylum Apicomplexa. Phylogenetic studies have confirmed that the microsporidia evolved from the fungi, being most closely related to the zygomycetes. Microsporidia have extremely small genomes, very similar to those seen in bacteria. A variety of serologic tests have been used to detect immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM

Nhue River is water spinach, consuming those raw spinach are at high risk of exposure to microbial. The purpose of this study was to assess the health risks of consuming raw water spinach contaminated by Coliforms, G. lamblia and C. parvum in Nhue River, Hanam Province. A total of 36 water spinach samples and nine water samples were collected for three types of pathogens analyses using Most Probable Number (MPN) and Immuno-fluorescent Antibodies (IFA) methods. We have assumed that 49% of fecal coliforms were E. coli and that 8% of E. coli were pathogenic. To simulate the impact of washing vegetable to remove pathogens from vegetable, water spinach were washed one, two and three times with soak in tap water. The results showed that E. coli O157:H7 in water spinach without washing, one time washing, two and three times washing reduced from 3.23 ± 1.64 to 1.42 ± 1.77 CFU/g. An average number of E. coli O157:H7 in river water were 4.77 log CFU/100ml. The mean amount of raw spinach consumption was ...

This chapter includes some of the opportunistic parasites that can cause disease in immunocompromised patients. Although most parasitic infections are known to cause more severe symptoms when a host's immune system is impaired, the representative organisms presented in this chapter have been identified as causing the most severe disease in this population group. Malaria, Trypanosoma spp., Toxoplasma gondii, and Leishmania spp. are the principal parasites that may be transmitted with bone marrow, kidney, or liver homografts, and microsporidia are the principle parasites transmitted with xeno-transplants. The organisms discussed in the chapter are Entamoeba histolytica, free-living amebae, Giardia lamblia, T. gondii, Cryptosporidium spp., Cyclospora cayetanensis, Isospora belli, Sarcocystis spp., microsporidia, Leishmania spp., Strongyloides stercoralis, and Sarcoptes scabiei (crusted scabies). It is important for the laboratorian and clinician to be aware of problems that these organisms can cause

Wealth and Its Associations with Enteric Parasitic Infections in a Low-Income Community in Peru: Use of Principal Component...
Abstract. The association of wealth and infections with Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, and microsporidia were examined in a longitudinal cohort conducted in Peru from 2001 to 2006. Data from 492 participants were daily clinical manifestations, weekly copro-parasitological diagnosis, and housing characteristics and assets owned (48 variables), and these data were used to construct a global wealth index using principal component analysis. Data were analyzed using continuous and categorical (wealth tertiles) models. Participant's mean age was 3.43 years (range = 0-12 years), with average follow-up of 993 days. Univariate and multivariate analyses identified significant associations between wealth and infections with Giardia and microsporidia. Participants with greater wealth indexes were associated with protection against Giardia (P < 0.001) and persistent Giardia infections (> 14 days). For microsporidia, greater wealth was protective (P = 0.066 continuous and P = 0.042 by tertiles).

Cystoisospora belli, previously known as Isospora belli, is a parasite that causes an intestinal disease known as cystoisosporiasis. This protozoan parasite is opportunistic in immune suppressed human hosts. It primarily exists in the epithelial cells of the small intestine, and develops in the cell cytoplasm. The distribution of this coccidian parasite is cosmopolitan, but is mainly found in tropical and subtropical areas of the world such as the Caribbean, Central and S. America, India, Africa, and S.E. Asia. In the U.S., it is usually associated with HIV infection and institutional living. A fully mature (sporulated) oocyst of Isospora genus is a spindle-shaped body that has two sporocysts that contain four sporozoites each. The oocysts of Cystoisospora belli are long and oval shaped. They measure between 20 and 33 micrometers in length and between 10 and 19 micrometers wide. An oocyst with one sporoblast is released in stool of infected person After the oocyst has been released, the ...

Guidelines for the investigation of chronic diarrhoea in adults have recently been updated.2 These guidelines provide recommendations for investigating most patients who have chronic diarrhoea, and reflect the now greater availability of simple tests such as faecal calprotectin, coeliac serology, lower gastrointestinal endoscopy and tests for bile acid diarrhoea (BAD). The criteria for functional gastrointestinal disorders were revised in 2016 (Rome IV), with modifications made to the definitions of the various functional bowel disorders (FBD).1 The revised criteria recognise a continuum between functional diarrhoea and IBS-D, and the usefulness of the Bristol stool form scale (BSFS) types 6 and 7 for defining diarrhoea. Approaches to the clinical evaluation of patients are indicated in those articles,1-2 which provide much of the evidence discussed here, backed up by my clinical experience, highlighting certain mistakes that can be made in the management of chronic diarrhoea. ...
Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Enterocytozoon bieneusi - microsporidial intestinal infection. Shown are spores in a degenerating enterocyte (human intestinal lumen). Enterocytozoon bieneusi, commonly known as microsporidia, is a unicellular, parasitic fungus. The microsporidia life cycle includes a proliferative merogonic stage, followed by a sporogonic stage resulting in small, infective spores, that are used in the infection mode. The spores contain a long, coiled polar tube, which distinguishes them from all other organisms and has a crucial role in host cell invasion. It infects intestinal epithelial cells and is considered an intracellular parasite. It can be a secondary infection to AIDS/HIV.

Cryptosporidia are small coccidian parasites that infect the mucosal epithelia of a variety of vertebrate hosts, including humans, affecting the health, survival, and economic development of millions of people and animals worldwide. Human infection is mainly caused by two species: (1) Cryptosporidium parvum-also prevalent in young livestock; can be transmitted from animals to humans (zoonotic transmission, particularly important in children), from person to person (urban cycle, due to faecal-oral spread), through contamination of public drinking-water supplies (which can produce massive outbreaks) or food (prepared by a sick food handler), and nosocomially. (2) ...
