Huevo de anquilostoma

Este es un huevo de anquilostoma. Los anquilostomas eclosionan en la vegetación húmeda y sus larvas pueden penetrar el cuerpo humano a través de la piel, incluso cuando ésta no presenta cortaduras ni abrasiones. Una vez que atraviesan la piel, comienzan el siguiente paso de su ciclo vital.Huevo de anquilostoma
