Caption: Neisseria meningitidis. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the bacteria Neisseria menin- gitidis, the agent which causes meningitis. These are non-motile, Gram-negative coccus (spherical) bacteria. At lower frame a cell has undergone a double cell division, producing 4 bacterial cells. Another cell (upper left) is beginning to divide. Neisseria meningitidis is an obligate human parasite. It causes meningococcal (cerebrospinal) meningitis, the inflammation of connective tissue membranes lining the brain & spinal cord. Symptoms include headache, fever, muscle rigidity, deli- rium, sometimes death. Treatment with antibiotics. Magnification: x125,000 at 8x10 inch size.
