The genetic diversity of Cryptosporidium spp. from infected children was characterized for the first time in Bangladesh. Seven C. hominis and C. parvum subtype families (including a new family, IIm) and 15 subtypes (including 2 new subtypes) were identified. The dominance of specific families and subtypes was different from that in other countries.
