Abstract: 

The prevalence of cryptosporidial infection in human and horse has been determined in Mashhad. The cryptosporidium spp. oocysts from horse and human fecal samples were floated and concentrated by Sheather's sugar flotation technique and were stained by the modified Ziehl-Neelsen procedure. Out of 300 horse samples, 26.66% were infected. We could not find any significant differences between the rates of equine cryptosporidiosis in cold and warm seasons, and between different sexes. In human, cryptosporidial infection was diagnosed only in persons (3 out of a total of 120) who were in contact to animals. Our results also indicate that more likely infection would primarily occur in animal, and human would be a secondary host for cryptosporidium.
