Caption: Trichinella spiralis. Light micrograph of a section through cysts caused by Trichinella spiralis roundworms in pork muscle tissue. The pork muscle is stained blue. Several circular cysts are visible (dark blue, top right, lower right and lower left). Larvae are visible inside the cysts (purple). The cysts are being attacked by white blood cells (red). T. spiralis is a parasitic nematode worm. Human infection, usually caused by eating contaminated pork, causes Trichinosis. The larvae mature in the intestines and reproduce, spreading around the body causing fevers and pain, and forming muscular cysts. Magnification x35 at 6x7cm size.
