Caption: Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a single cell infected with Toxoplasma sp., a genus of sporozoans that parasitise cells in various and organs of birds and mammals, and complete their life-cycle in a single host. Toxoplasma appears as the rougly spherical pink bodies filling the entire cell. Toxoplasma gondii infects sheep, cattle, dogs and man, sometimes provoking an acute illness, toxoplasmosis. Infection in man occurs through undercooked meat, contaminated soil, or by direct contact. Symptoms are usually mild, but severe infection of lymph nodes may occur. Severe cases are treated with sulphonamide drugs. Magnification: X 1500 at 35mm size.
