Caption: Light microscopy of a clump of red blood cells caused by malaria parasites. Malaria is caused by the parasitic protozoan Plasmodium sp., which is transmitted to humans by mosquito bites. In malaria, these characteristic clumps of blood cells are called rosettes. The beating of a Plasmodium is seen outside the rosette, while one of the red blood cells in the rosette (lower left) is at the schizont stage, full of parasites.
