Caption: Light microscopy of malaria parasites in human blood. Malaria is a disease caused by infection by parasitic Plasmodium sp. protozoa. Several infected red blood cells, or schizonts, are seen here, filled with merozoites, which reproduce within the cell, eventually killing it. Some of these burst out of the cell at right, and they will go on to infect more cells. Malaria is spread by the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitoes, in which the parasite completes its life cycle.
