This photomicrograph reveals some of the histopathology found in this cardiac tissue sample in a case of cardiac toxoplasmosis. The biopsy specimen was harvested from a patient with a fatal case of AIDS. You’re able to see that contained within a myocyte is what is referred to as a pseudocyst, containing numerous Toxoplasma gondii bradyzoites. Several myocardial contraction bands, and scattered inflammatory cells are visible as well.
