Cyclospora cayetanensis infection in Lagos, Nigeria


, : Cyclospora cayetanensis infection in Lagos, Nigeria. Clinical Microbiology and Infection 9(7): 731-733

Although reports of Cyclospora infection continue to increase globally, few cases have been reported from the African continent. We present 11 cases of cyclosporiasis detected from stool samples submitted to seven major hospital laboratories in Lagos, Nigeria between March 1999 and April 2000.
