Coccidiosis in the turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is an important veterinary disease with a significant economic impact on the poultry industry. The disease is caused by single-cell parasites of the genus Eimeria from the phylum Apicomplexa. This parasite targets the intestinal tract of the host, damaging the intestinal cells. Parasite transmission occurs via the oral-fecal route. Infections are common in farming environments where many animals are confined in a small space.
