Abstract: The first case of cyclosporosis in a non HIV-infected child in Thailand, co-infected with Cryptosporidium, was reported. The patient was a 3 year-old malnourished orphan who presented with fever, abdominal distension and relapsing diarrhea. There was no leukocyte in her stool, however, numerous Cyclospora and Cryptosporidium oocysts were identified by modified acid-fast staining. The illness was cured by co-trimoxazole and fluid therapy. More coccidial infections in Thailand may be detected if modified acid-fast staining is routinely performed.
