Cryptosporidium is a gastrointestinal protozoan parasite that infects humans and animals, causing a disease known as intestinal, tracheal and pulmonary cryptosporidiosis. Diarrhea, weight loss and abdominal cramps are the clinical symptoms of this disease, which can produce an electrolyte imbalance in immunosuppressed individuals. Pulmonary and tracheal cryptosporidiosis is associated with cough and fever, often accompanied by intestinal alterations. These symptoms generally develop 4-6 days after infection, although they can appear at any moment at 2-10 days.
Giardia intestinalis, also called Giardia lamblia, is a gastrointestinal protozoan parasite infecting various species (mammals, birds, etc.). It causes a clinical picture that ranges from the symptom-free carrier to cases of acute or chronic diarrheic disease, especially in children.Symptoms appear 1-3 weeks after contagion, following an incubation period of approximately 8 days. Both parasites are found throughout the world, particularly in areas with deficient sanitary conditions.
