Description: Caption:
This photomicrograph of a fecal specimen revealed the presence of an unidentified amebic trophozoite, which though difficult to see, contained a number of nuclei, each with their peripherally located chromatin, and centrally placed karyosome. The trophozoite also contained two darkly stained ingested erythrocytes, or red blood cells (RBCs), which had entered the confines of the trophozoite through the process of erythrophagocytosis.
