Faecal samples collected from 42 wild monkeys in Cameroon were examined for microsporidia by light microscopy (using Weber trichrome and Uvitex 2B stains) and by PCR (using Enterocytozoon bieneusi specific primers). None of the 42 samples was positive, suggesting that wild monkeys do not represent a major reservoir for microsporidia in Central Africa.
