In persons with AIDS and in others whose immune system is weakened, Crypto can be serious, long-lasting, and sometimes fatal. If your CD4+ cell count is below 200, Crypto is more likely to cause diarrhea and other symptoms for a long time. If your CD4+ count is above 200, your illness may not last more than 1 to 3 weeks or slightly longer.

If your CD4+ count later drops below 200, your symptoms may reappear.  (Source: excerpt from Preventing Cryptosporidiosis: A Guide for People with Compromised Immune Systems: DPD)
