Many species of Cryptosporidium exist that infect humans and a wide range of animals.
Although Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryptosporidium hominis formerly known as C. Sporulated oocysts, containing 4 sporozoites, are excreted by the infected host through feces and possibly other routes such as respiratory secretions.
Transmission of Cryptosporidium parvum and C. Occasionally food sources, such as chicken salad, may serve as vehicles for transmission.
Many outbreaks in the United States have occurred in waterparks, community swimming pools, and day care centers. Zoonotic and anthroponotic transmission of C.

Following ingestion and possibly inhalation by a suitable hostexcystation occurs. The sporozoites are released and parasitize epithelial cellsof the gastrointestinal tract or other tissues such as the respiratory tract.
In these cells, the parasites undergo asexual multiplication schizogony or merogony, and then sexual multiplication gametogony producing microgamonts male and macrogamonts female. Upon fertilization of the macrogamonts by the microgametesoocystsdevelop that sporulate in the infected host. Two different types of oocysts are produced, the thick-walled, which is commonly excreted from the hostand the thin-walled oocystwhich is primarily involved in autoinfection.
Oocysts are infective upon excretion, thus permitting direct and immediate fecal-oral transmission.
