Caption: The lifecycle of malaria parasites. A mosquito bites and infects a person. Sporozoites enter the bloodstream, and migrate to the liver, infecting those cells and multiplying into merozoites. They rupture the liver cells and escape back into the bloodstream. Then the merozoites infect red blood cells, where they develop into ring forms, then trophozoites (a feeding stage), then schizonts (a reproduction stage), then back into merozoites. Sexual forms called gametocytes are also produced, which, if taken up by a mosquito, will infect the insect and continue the lifecycle.
