Infection with Cryptosporidium hominis and reinfection with Cryptosporidium parvum in a transplanted ileum: Case report
Abstract:Pozio E, Rivasi F, Cacciò SM. Infection with Cryptosporidium hominis and reinfection with Cryptosporidium parvum in a transplanted ileum. APMIS 2004;112:309–13.
A transplanted ileum was found to be infected with Cryptosporidium hominis 6 days after transplantation. Although the infection resolved, the ileum was later found to be infected with Cryptosporidium parvum. The presence of the parasite was not always correlated with diarrhea. No other gastrointestinal symptom was ever detected. Treatment with azithromycin and paromomycin apparently failed.
