Abstract

Amebostomes are labile sucker-like structures repeatedly observed and described in Naegleria by different authors. Studying the phagocytic action of some Acanthamoeba species on Vero cells, the formation of similar structures to the Naegleria amebostomes was observed, apparently related to the phagocytic activity on cells.
