Abstract

Excystation, as applied to the coccidia, is the process by which sporozoites are released from sporocysts and oocysts. Although this process has long been a subject of interest and study, there still remains considerable disagreement among investigators as to the mechanism by which the process occurs and the factors which are involved.
