Caption: Toxoplasmosis parasite cyst. Light micrograph of a microscopic cyst (centre) containing Toxoplasma gondii parasites (stained red) in mouse brain tissue. Thousands of resting parasites can be seen enveloped by the thin parasite cyst wall. T. gondii is a species of parasitic protozoa that can be carried by all known mammals. It causes toxoplasmosis, a usually minor and self-limiting disease. It can, however, have serious or even fatal effects on an unborn foetus if the mother contracts toxoplasmosis during pregnancy.
