Parasite Case of the Week 8

Welcome to the Parasite C.O.W.
Every Monday I will post a new case, as well as the answer to the previous case (you will find it below the corresponding case). Please feel free to leave a comment or your thoughts regarding the diagnosis. Enjoy!

The below Wright-Giemsa stained blood film is from a patient with no reported travel outside of the United States. Click on the images to enlarge.
