The epidemiologic information provided in the table reflects what was submitted to CDC as part of surveillance or outbreak-related activities for cyclosporiasis.


The collection location was not necessarily the same as the place of exposure to C. cayetanensis.


The terminology temporospatial cluster is used here for cases that were not linked to a particular establishment or event but were temporally and geographically clustered.


Because US patients with a history of international travel may have spent part of the 2-week period before illness onset in the United States, the specified travel destination is not necessarily where they became infected.
