Abstract

Abstract

Seemingly intact cysts and sequential stages of disintegrating cysts of Toxoplasma were identified immunohistologically within developing microglial nodules in a Panamanian night monkey (). This monkey had been successfully immunized and challenged 5 months earlier. This supports the hypothesis that glial nodules unassociated with Toxoplasma tachyzoites may represent the tombstone of a Toxoplasma cyst. Disintegration of cysts may give rise to clinical encephalitis in the presence of apparently adequate immunity.
