dc.description.abstractCase studies and anecdotal reports document a range of acute illnesses associated with exposure to cyanobacteria in recreational waters. Studies on the epidemiology of recreational exposure to cyanobacteria are limited and somewhat conflicting, and much uncertainty remains regarding measures of exposure, susceptibility of individuals with a history of allergic illness, and the relative contribution of cyanobacterial exotoxins to these acute illnesses. Preliminary statistical analysis of a prospective cohort study of 1,331 subjects recruited in eastern Australia and central Florida has not revealed any significant difference in specific illnesses between unexposed groups and those exposed to various levels of cyanobacteria.
