R is caused by Neospora caninum, Apicomplexa
protozoarian that infects cattle due to consumption of contaminated foods with excrements of canidae, its definitive host, and by transplacentary way.

Neospora caninum es un protozoo intracelular obligado, perteneciente al Phylum Apicomplexa
The four phyla of medical concern are Sarcomastigophora (motile by means of pseudopods such as ameba or by flagella such as Trichomonas vaginalis), Apicomplexa
(nonmotile when mature such as Cryptosporidium parvum), Cilophora (motile by means of cilia such as Bal.
Entre los parasitos encontrados se evidencio una alta presencia de protozoos del genero Eimeria, 67,4%, pertenecientes al phylum Apicomplexa
, familiaEimeriidae, entre las cuales se identificaron E.
El genero Cyclospora pertenece al phylum Apicomplexa
, clase Sporozoa, subclase Coccidia.
It belongs to the subphylum Apicomplexa
, class Sporozoa, and exists in nature in 3 forms: the oocyst (which releases sporozoites), the tissue cyst (which contains and may release bradyzoites), and the tachyzoite.
Besides bolstering the theory that endosymbiotic events were common in evolutionary history, the finding may have medicinal value: The protozoans belong to the group Apicomplexa
, which includes the organisms responsible for malaria and toxoplasmosis.

Equine babesiosis is caused by Babesia equi (Theileria equi) and Babesia caballi, which are intracellular obligate parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa
and cause hemoparasitic disease in horses [2,3].
