Eimeria life cycle is quite complex comprising of endogenous stage (gametogony and schizogony) and exogenous stage (sporogony).
The life cycle of all apicomplexans consists of 3 major phases: schizogony (an asexual phase with multiple mitoses), gametogony (a sexual phase involving progression from gametocytes to gametes which join to form a zygote), and sporogony (another asexual phase consisting of infective sporozoites forming within the zygote).
Remaining phase of life cycle is gametogony and sporogony, occurs in arthropod vectors and produce the infective stages called sporozoites.
