- Cryptosporidium is a genus of protozoan parasite and causes a diarrheae illness in mammals including animals and humans. The source of infection Cryptosporidium is oocysts that are sporulated and infective when excreted in the feces and resulting environmental contamination. Cryptosporidiosis can be transmitted from animals to humans and vice versa (zoonosis). This study aimed to determine the prevalence of cryptosporidiosis in cattle from Ciamis and Tasikmalaya, West Java, Indonesia. The fecal speciments from 348 cattle (295 female and 53 male) were randomly collected. The examined for the presence of Cryptosporidium sp oocysts used floating stool with Sheater sugar and acid - fast staining method (Ziehl Neelsen stain). The results showed that the overall prevalence of infection was 12.07 % ( 42/348), with an infection rate of 14.58%, 19.64 % and 9.84 % in cattle less than 6 months, 7-12 months and over 12 months, respectively, also 10.85 % and 18.87 % in female and male, respectively. Although no significant difference exists between the age groups, calves less than 12 months of age are more likely to be infected than over 12 months. The result indicate that Cryptosporidium sp infection is prevalent in Ciamis and Tasikmalaya that could serve as reservoirs for the zooonotic infection in humans.
