Under a magnification of 250X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by three, Schistosoma mansoni ova, which measured approximately 114µm-180µm long, by 45µm-70µm wide, and displayed a characteristic shape, with a prominent lateral spine near each egg’s posterior end. Note that the anterior ends were tapered, and slightly curved. When these eggs are excreted in stool, they each will contain a mature miracidium.
