Caption: This photomicrograph of an iron-hematoxylin-stained specimen, revealed the presence of two amoebic organisms in their cystic stages of their development. In this focal plane, the smaller Entamoeba histolytica cyst (top), contained four nuclei, and two bluntly-tipped chromatoid bodies, while six nuclei could be detected in the larger Entamoeba coli cyst (bottom), which also contained two chromatoid bodies as well.
