Caption: Transmission electron micrograph of the trophozoite, or proliferative form, of the sporozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Several organisms (large central ovals) are seen in liver tissue. T. gondii causes toxoplasmosis in humans & is especially dangerous to pregnant women. Cats are the definitive host and all mammals including sheep & cattle may become infected. Only cats excrete the oocysts in their faeces, which contaminate the soil & cause the infection in humans & animals. Infection in man also occurs through undercooked meat, or direct contact. Magnification: x12,000 at 8x10 inch size.
