  1. Prevalence of cryptosporidiosis in HIV-infected patients with diarrhoeal illness.

    Article - En anglais

    Protozoans of the genus Cryptosporidium may cause serious diarrhoeal illness in immunocompromised hosts and especially in HIV-infected patients.

    In this study we have evaluated the frequency of Cryptosporidium in stools of 51 HIV-infected patients with diarrhoea.

    Laboratory diagnosis of cryptosporidiosis was performed of faecal samples concentrated by a formalin-ether sedimentation technique and stained by a modified cold Ziehl-Neelsen method.

    Results demonstrated that 17 (33.3%) of these patients were infected with Cryptosporidium.

    Moreover, Cryptosporidium infection was the first clinical marker of AIDS in 7 cases.
