Eventually the cyst bursts and the sporozoites are liberated into the haemocoele or body cavity of the mosquito, through which they make their way forwards to the salivary glands, there to lie in wait for an opportunity to invade a new human host when the infected mosquito bites again. In addition to the typical paroxysms, involving fever and rigor, which coincide with the bursting of infected erythrocytes and the discharge of merozoites and toxic metabolic by-products into the blood plasma, malaria is characterised by anaemia (resulting from destruction of red blood corpuscles) and by enlargement of the spleen.
