Description:Cryptosporidium oocysts, observed in a natural sputum sample of a patient with HIV, were further studied by using DNA markers to determine the species of the parasite. C. hominis was identified as the species infecting the patient's respiratory tract, a finding that strengthens evidence regarding this pathogen's role in human disease.
