Quick Reference

A cyst about 50 to 60 microns in diameter on the wall of the female anopheline mosquito's stomach that develops from the zygote of the plasmodium (malaria parasite). The oocyst grows, and its contents divide to form sporozoites, which are released into the body cavity of the mosquito when the oocyst bursts, then migrate to the mouth parts to be injected into a human host when the mosquito takes its next blood meal.
