Caption: Red blood cell (erythrocyte) infected with the malaria parasite (Plasmodium falciparum), animated coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The distinct knobs are characteristic of young developing plasmodial schizonts (Plasmodium falciparum) in the red blood cells. Malaria is caused by Plasmodium spp., protozoa. It is spread to humans by Anopheles species mosquitoes. The plasmodial parasite reproduces asexually in red blood cells significantly destroying many of them. Release of mature Plasmodium merozoites results in further infection and produces bouts of shivering fever (paroxysms) and sweating that may be fatal.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
