1995 Cryptosporidiosis Outbreak at a Farm in Dublin, Ireland

Sayers et al (1996) reported a Cryptosporidium outbreak during the summer of 1995, involving 13 children. The children had participated in a summer project and visited an open farm in Dublin, Ireland. The investigators concluded that the outbreak was associated with playing in the sand on a picnic area beside the stream where animals had access. This outbreak emphasizes the potential risk associated with children visiting open farms.
