Also found in: Acronyms.

En·ceph·a·li·to·zo·on cu·nic·u·li

a common cryptic infection of most mammals and some birds, transmitted in urine-contaminated food and by transplacental transmission. Disseminated human infection has been reported among immunosuppressed patients. Latent infection seen by serodiagnosis suggests widespread nonsymptomatic infection in tropical regions.
