Abstract

Summary

Electron microscopic studies of ultrathin sections of the erythrocytic forms of revealed that this intracellular parasite feeds on its host cell by means of phagotrophy.

The body of is covered by a thin cytoplasmic membrane which in certain areas appeared as a double membrane. The nucleus of the parasite is enclosed in two distinct membranes and its content varies in density from electron-lucid to more dense material which appeared to be agglomerates of small dense granules. Endoplasmic reticulum, food vacuoles, vacuoles surrounded by double or single membranes, and pigment (hemozoin) were visible in the cytoplasm of the parasite.

were not stained by fluorescein-labeled antibody which stained intensely.
