Sarcocystis lindemanni


a protozoan species described on rare occasions from the striated and heart muscles of humans, probably as an infection due to various species, possibly from domestic dogs or other final hosts from which infective oocysts or sporocysts were passed to humans in water or through direct exposure; in these instances humans serve as an intermediate rather than a final host.
