Isospora

Isospora is a genus of internal parasites classified under Coccidia.[1][2]

It is responsible for the condition isosporiasis, which causes acute, non-bloody diarrhoea in immunocompromised individuals.

Taxonomy

At least 248 species have been described in this genus. For instance, the house sparrow has 12 species of Isospora.[1][2] However, most species are little studied, and some authors doubted whether all should be recognized as distinct species.[3] Some have proposed splitting those species with paratenic hosts into separate genera Levinia or Cystoisospora, but as of 1997 this had not been widely accepted.[3]
