Abstract: Cryptosporidium spp. are zoonotic protozoa, frequently associated with diarrhea in calves, which are responsible for important economic losses. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of infection by Cryptosporidium spp. and its associated risk factors among calves raised in a milk production region of Northeastern Brazil. Fecal samples (n = 385) were obtained from young animals (up to ten months old) and evaluated by means of centrifugal fecal sedimentation in formalin-ether followed by the modifie… Show more

“…Considering the age category of cattle, a higher prevalence (28.6%) was reported in the (1-12 months) age group. This result was in line with the prevalence of 27.8% in Haramaya (Regassa et al, 2013), 24% in South Eastern Ethiopia (Birhanu et al, 2017), 28.1% in Nigeria (Ayinmode and Fagbemi, 2010), and 25.7% in Brazil (Conceição et al, 2021). However, it is higher than the ndings from different parts of Ethiopia: 13.8% from East Wollega, 10% from Tigrai, 13% from Southern Ethiopia; 13.6% from Bishoftu; and 10.8% from West Showa (Ayana and Alemu, 2015;Hailu et al, 2020;Mullusew et al, 2020;Ebiyo and Haile, 2022;Ki eyohanes et al (2022).…”

“…This clinical sign may be associated with the presence of Cryptosporidium itself, which leads to malabsorption due to atrophy of intestinal microvilli, or through association with other agents (Oliveira et al, 2012). Although Cryptosporidium infection is related to the presence of diarrhea, asymptomatic animals can also eliminate oocysts (Conceição et al, 2021), thus playing an important role as a source of environmental contamination (Thomson et al, 2017).…”
