Caption: Neutrophil engulfing TB bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a neutrophil white blood cell (large, centre) engulfing and destroying a tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) bacterium (small, left). This process is called phagocytosis. Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell and are part of the body's immune system.
