Abstract:

Diagnosis of Cryptosporidiosis and associated diarrhea is a big challenge for health care in this region. To determine the prevalence of cryptosporidiosis among the hospital in  the Cachar district of Assam, India. A standard conventional technique was used in the identification of parasites, including cryptosporidiosis from among the 220 diarrheal patients whose samples were analyzed. We report a 65.9 % (145 out of 220) overall parasite, prevalence and 16.3% (36 out of 220) prevalence of Cryptosporidium oocysts was found in the patients studied. High percentages of Cryptosporidium positive cases were observed in the <1 years (31.3%) and the 1-14 years 49 (22.2%) age groups. Other intestinal parasites found in the stool samples of the studied diarrhea patients were: hookworm which was observed in 25(11.3%) patients, Ascaris lumbricoides also in 25(11.3%) patients, Entamoeba histolytica was found in 19(8.6%) patients, Giardia lamblia in 11(5.0%) patients, Cyclospora cayetanensis in 07 (3.1%) patients, Strongyloides stercolaris in 5 (2.2%), and Trichuris trichiura was found in 09(4.09%) patients. Poor hygiene both personal and environmental, poor diagnostic, clinical, prevention and control skills facilities may have impacted on Cryptosporidiosis has been reported in this study.
