Description: A photomicrograph of a blood smear with ring stage Plasmodium falciparum infected blood cells.

An immature trophozoite may mature into an erythrocytic schizont, or gametocyte. When the erythrocytic schizont ruptures, merozoites spill into the blood and repeat the cycle, further infecting additional erythrocytes.
