Cyclospora cayetanensis is emerging as an important cause of food-borne diarrheal outbreaks, especially in developed regions like the United States and Europe. We describe an outbreak of cyclosporiasis in Peruvian naval recruits that we believe to be the first among a local population in a developing region.
