Higher prevalence of isosporiasis
was seen in patients with CD4 [less than or equal to]200 cells/pL as compared to those with higher CD4 + T cell counts.
Parasites causing diarrhoea: cryptosporidiosis, microsporidiosis and isosporiasis
belli as the most common coproparasite in HIV infected individuals with diarrhoea and revealed an increasing trend in the proportion of isosporiasis
, and strongyloidiasis.
This level of resistance may compromise the usefulness of SXT in preventing bacterial infection in HIV-infected persons, although any effect in preventing Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia or isosporiasis
would be valuable.
Clinically, cyclosporiasis cannot be distinguished from cryptosporidiosis or isosporiasis
. In otherwise healthy individuals, the infection is usually self-limiting.
The median TCD4+ cell count is usually above or close to 200 cells/[mm.sup.3] for tuberculosis and isosporiasis
infections and less than 100 cells/[mm.sup.3] for candidiasis, PCP, CMV infection, and MAC infection .
The commonest extra-intestinal manifestation of cryptosporidiosis, microsporidiosis and isosporiasis
is acalculous cholecystitis.
Includes only: candidiasis of lung (112.4) coccidiosis (007.2) cryptosporidiosis (007.2) isosporiasis
(007.2 cryptococcosis (117.5) With HIV infection pneumocystosis (136.3) progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (046.3) toxoplasmosis (130)
Protozoal pathogens include Cryptosporidiosis, Isosporiasis
, Microsporidiosis, Pnemo-cystis Carinii Pneumonia (PCP) and Toxoplasmosis.
