Coccidiosis is a disease caused by parasites of the genus Eimeria and Isospora belonging to the phylum Apicomplexa
with a complex life cycle, affecting mainly the intestinal tract of many species of mammals and birds.
The phylum Apicomplexa
comprises intracellular protozoa that include human pathogens that cause diseases such as babesiosis, malaria, and toxoplasmosis (1).
