To the Editor: In their otherwise excellent review of pet-associated diseases (Oct. 17 issue),1 Elliot and associates failed to include cryptosporidium infections, which have recently been recognized as a fairly common cause of diarrhea, especially in immunodeficient patients. Fortunately, a fine discussion of this illness by Dr. Blacklow was included in a clinicopathological exercise (Case 39–1985) published earlier in the Journal.2.
