Abstract
Two large outbreaks of diarrheal illness associated with Cyclospora cayetan ensis, a coccidian parasite, provided an opportunity to evaluate clinical s yndromes associated with this enteric pathogen. Reiter syndrome, a triad of ocular inflammation, inflammatory oligoarthritis, and sterile urethritis, has been associated with enteric infections. We describe the first case of Reiter syndrome following protracted symptoms of Cyclospora infection.
