Description:Magnified 1150X, this acid-stained photomicrograph revealed the presence of a parasitic, old Plasmodium vivax trophozoite without any apparent stippling.
Developing trophozoites of P. vivax become increasingly amoeboid, with tenuous pseudopodial processes and large vacuoles. Sch├╝ffner's dots are visible with proper staining. Pigment tends to be fine and brown. Infected RBCs are usually noticeably larger than uninfected RBCs.
