The present study deals with Berlin strains of Histomonas meleagridis, the specimens of which were cultivated in Dwyer’s medium. The light and electron microscopic examination revealed that the cultivated trophozoite stages (reaching about 10 μm in size) appeared more or less spherical, although their surface (covered by a single membrane) showed amoeba-like waves. All stages were uni-nucleated and reproduced by binary fission with an extranuclear spindle apparatus. Some trophozoites appeared… CONTINUE READING
