Abstract:

The multiplication of toxoplasms in orally infected cats takes place into two different ways. In the first, the agent is excreted as oocyst in the faeces after non-sexual and sexual division in the intestinal epithelium. In the second one, it undergoes non-sexual multiplication and penetrates through the various layers of the small intestine, into other organs of the body. The spreading in terms of time and site taking place has been the subject of the studies described. Modified author abstract
