To the Editor The recently published article by McIlwee and colleagues1 provides valuable insight into a protozoal disease the transmission of which within the United States (predominantly Texas) has been largely underrecognized by the US medical community. We would like to commend the authors for publishing this work and briefly expand on some topics presented that we believe warrant clarification and further discussion.
