schizogony very exceptional, only occurring during the intracellular phase, if at all.
On the other hand, where schizogony is rapid and prolonged, the results are often serious.
The fever produced is of an irregular type and the period of schizogony has not been definitely determined.
The trophozoite is now large and full-grown, and has become rounded and ready for schizogony.
On the one hand, schizogony may be so limited in extent as not to cause appreciable injury to the host.
An interesting point in the schizogony is the formation of schizontocytes (see above).
schizogony schi·zog·o·ny (skĭ-zŏg'ə-nē, skĭt-sŏg'-)
Multiple fission in which the nucleus divides first, and then the cell divides into as many parts as there are nuclei. Also called merogony.
