JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's health department says a fourth case of cyclospora infection has been confirmed in the state.
The Department of Health and Senior Services said Monday the latest report of the stomach bug came from a health care provider in central Missouri's Miller County.
Officials say it's not known how the person contracted the infection, or if the Missouri cases are related to those several other states.
Missouri's earlier cases were reported in the Kansas City metro area, Jackson County and Taney County.
Cyclospora infections are mostly found in tropical or subtropical countries. Symptoms include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps or nausea.
