What is a tachyzoite?
Tachyzoites are a type of parasitic protozoan that can infect different animals, from fish to mammals. Infection of a tachyzoite takes place when the parasite enters the host body through a wound or mucous membrane. Although primarily parasites of fish and amphibians, tachyzoites have been known to cause disease in higher-order mammals, most notably horses, pigs, and humans.
Under normal circumstances, tachyzoites are eliminated from the host body by the Immune System.
