Caption: Neisseria meningitidis. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a colony of Neisseria meningitidis, one of the types of bacteria that cause meningitis. It is a non-motile, gram- negative coccus (round celled) bacteria. N. meningitidis is an obligate human parasite and the cause of meningococcal (cerebrospinal) meningitis, the inflammation of the connective tissue membranes lining the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include intense headache, fever, muscle rigidity and, in severe cases, convulsions and delirium leading to death. Bacterial meningitis is treated with large doses of antibiotics. Magnification: x5000 at 35mm size.
