Cryptosporidiosis presenting as acute appendicitis: a case report.
Am Surg. 2005 Jun; 71(6):537-8.AS

Abstract

Although uncommon in the United States, cryptosporidiosis can be life-threatening in an immunosuppressed host. Rarely, an acute infection of this gastrointestinal illness can present as another disease entity. We present only the third reported case of cryptosporidial infection presenting as acute appendicitis in a 17-year-old HIV+ patient.
