cayetanensis (SIGH-clo-SPORE-uh KYE-uh-tuh-NEN-sis) is a parasite
composed of one cell, too small to be seen without a microscope. The first
known human cases of illness caused by Cyclospora infection (i.e.,
cyclosporiasis) were reported in 1979. Cases began being reported more
often in the mid-1980s. In the last several years, outbreaks of
cyclosporiasis have been reported in the United States and Canada. (Source: excerpt from Cyclospora Infection: DPD)
