PCR confirmation of infection with Cyclospora cayetanensis

, : PCR confirmation of infection with Cyclospora cayetanensis. Emerging Infectious Diseases 2(4): 357-359

A total of 42 stool samples were tested for the presence of Cyclospora cayetanensis using a nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Light microscopy confirmed that 26 of the 42 cases were positive for Cyclospora, and a Cyclospora specific DNA fragment was amplified in 16 (62%) of these positive cases. The 10 specimens negative by PCR but positive by microscopy contained low numbers of oocysts; none of the 16 specimens which were negative by microscopy gave a positive result with PCR.
