ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – More than 300 Americans have come down with a rare stomach bug, including two cases in western Missouri. It might be caused by a tiny, one-cell parasite called cyclospora. The intestinal illness can cause weeks or even months of pain and discomfort.

If you experience severe stomach cramps, diarrhea or nausea health officials are urging you to seek medical attention.
