Humans can be infected by a wide range of parasites which may consist of a single cell or worms (helminths). Most parasites have more than one form in their development cycle. Many have a mature form and a cyst and/or egg (ova) form. The majority of people who are infected by gastrointestinal parasites become infected by drinking water or eating food that has been contaminated with the ova. Parasites can also be found in urine and respiratory specimens. Three common single-cell parasites are; Giardia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium. Taenia saginata/Taenia solium (Tapeworm) is an example of a worm. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, USDA, Parasites and Foodborne Illness
