Starting August 2012, an increase in Cryptosporidium infections was reported in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany. It represented a 1.8 to 4.9-fold increase compared to previous years. Most samples were C. hominis IbA10G2. A case–control study was performed in the Netherlands but did not identify an endemic source. A case–case study in the north of England found travel abroad to be the most common risk factor.
