A case of Isospora hominis infection in a returned solider is described. The protozoan was observed in large numbers in the stool specimens over a period of several months. The organism spontaneously disappeared. At no time were there any signs or symptoms referable to the presence of Isospora. In this instance the presence of Isospora was concluded to be sub-clinical. The date of the onset of the infection is undetermined.
