This photomicrograph of a fecal specimen reveals the presence of an unidentified amebic trophozoite, which contained a single nucleus with its peripherally-located chromatin, and centrally placed karyosome (A). The trophozoite also contained two ingested erythrocytes (B), or red blood cells (RBCs), which had entered the confines of the trophozoite through the process of erythrophagocytosis.
