Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0010418

NCI Thesaurus Code: C128408  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: An infection that is caused by Cryptosporidium parvum or hominis, which is acquired by inhalation or ingestion of infectious spores, and which typically manifests as acute enteritis.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Cryptosporidiosis (crypto) is an illness caused by a parasite. The parasite lives in soil, food and water. It may also be on surfaces that have been contaminated with waste. You can become infected if you swallow the parasite.

The most common symptom of crypto is watery diarrhea. Other symptoms include

  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Stomach cramps or pain
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Most people with crypto get better with no treatment, but crypto can cause serious problems in people with weak immune systems such as in people with HIV/AIDS. To reduce your risk of crypto, wash your hands often, avoid water that may be infected, and wash or peel fresh fruits and vegetables before eating.
