Symptoms of cyclosporiasis may include:
- Watery diarrhea (most common)
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Increased gas
Other symptoms that may occur but are less common include:
- Low-grade fever
If a person ill with cyclosporiasis is not treated, symptoms can persist for several weeks to a month or more. Some symptoms, such as diarrhea, can return; and some symptoms, such as muscle aches and fatigue, may continue after the gastrointestinal symptoms have gone away. The infection usually is not life threatening. Some infected persons do not have any symptoms, particularly persons from areas where cyclosporiasis is endemic.
