Abstract

This study's objective was to search for Cryptosporidium sp in diarrheic feces from children aged zero to 12 years and cared for at medicalunits within Universidade Federal de Uberlandia or at a private practice in Uberlandia, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, from September 1992 to August 1993. Three fecal samples preserved in 10% formalin, were collected from 94 children. Oocyst concentration was performed through Ritchie's (modified) method and staining of fecal smears for each sample (total of 1128 slides) was done by the ''Safranin/Methylene Blue'' and the ''Kinyoun (modified)'' techniques. The Hoffmann, Pens & Janer method was also employed to look for other enteroparasites. From 94 children, 4.26% excreted fecal Cryptosporidium oocysts. The infection seemed to vary according to age. 5.08% of patients aged zero to two yearsold; 33.33% of those aging eight to ten years (P > 0.05). Cryptosporidium appeared in November, December and March, during the rainy season. 20.21% of the children harbored at least one enteroparasite different from Cryptosporidium, mainly Giardia intestinalis (12.77%). From Cryptosporidium infected patients, two had only this kind, another harbored Giardia intestinalis, the last one hosted Strongyloides stercoralis.
