Caption: Illustration of a promastigote phagocytized by macrophages (white blood cells within tissues). Promastigotes transform into amastigotes, which divide and migrate as protozoan parasites to various invertebrates, including sandflies. When the infected sandflies bite humans they transmit a tropical disease called leishmaniasis.
