Caption: Haemophilus influenzae. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a single Haemophilus influenzae bacterium. At centre, this non-motile Gram-negative bacillus (rod-shaped) bacterium is seen (green). H. influenzae is an important pathogen in children aged 1-5 years. It colonises the upper respiratory tract in most humans within the first months of life, and is usually harmless. It may, however, spread locally and cause diseases of the lower respiratory tract such as bronchitis and pneumonia and of the ear, otitis media. Certain capsulated strains are the most common cause of bacterial meningitis and epiglottitis in children. Magnification: unknown.
