MedlinePlus:35 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. centers for disease control and prevention
MalaCards based summary: Cryptosporidiosis, also known as cryptosporidial gastroenteritis, is related to parasitic protozoa infectious disease and cd40 ligand deficiency. An important gene associated with Cryptosporidiosis is CD79A (CD79a Molecule, Immunoglobulin-Associated Alpha), and among its related pathways are Primary immunodeficiency and Prion diseases. The drug nitazoxanide has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, colon and liver, and related mouse phenotypes are immune system and homeostasis/metabolism.
Disease Ontology:10 A coccidiosis that involves a parasitic protozoan infection of the intestine of humans and a wide range of animals caused by cryptosporidium species, through contaminated water and food, the symptoms include watery diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. cryptosporidium infections have also been found in other digestive tract organs, the lungs, and conjunctiva. immunocompromised persons are at greater risk of developing the infection.
CDC:2 Cryptosporidium is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal disease cryptosporidiosis. Both the parasite and the disease are commonly known as "Crypto."
