Caption: Plasmodium parasite cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of the Plasmodium parasite that causes malaria in humans. The sporozoite stage (upper left, orange ovals in hexagonal hepatocytes) is injected into humans by a mosquito. The trophozoite (orange blob) and merozoite (orange oval) stages develop and form inside red blood cells (erythrocytes, red) in an asexual reproduction cycle (upper right), causing anaemia and periodic fevers in the host. The sexual reproduction cycle of Plasmodium (across bottom) occurs in the mosquito's salivary glands (green, lower left). The gametocytes are labelled at right with male and female symbols (blue).
