What is Cyclospora?

Our team of highly trained personal injury solicitors can lead you through the claims process.

Cyclospora is a parasite that is spread through contaminated food or water. It is most commonly found in subtropical regions of the world including Mexico. If you are travelling to a country in which cyclospora could be a risk then your tour operator should be doing everything in their power to minimise the risk of you contracting the parasite.

What are the symptoms of Cyclospora?

Some of the main symptoms of Cyclospora are:

  • Abdominal cramps
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Diarrhoea

Cyclospora has an incubated period of between two and eleven days meaning that you might only become ill once you are home from your holiday. Symptoms of the illness can last for between 9 and 43 days.
