Caption: Erysipelothrix sp. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, a bacterium causing erysipeloid in humans. The magenta areas around these non-motile, gram- positive bacillus (rod-shaped) bacteria are the cell walls and capsular material of the bacteria. Workers in the fish, poultry or meat processing industries are vulnerable to infection from animals carrying the bacteria through skin wounds. Painful swelling and inflammation, commonly on the hand, is usually confined to the area around the wound. Treatment, if necessary, is with antibiotics. Magnification: x58, 400 at 6x7cm size. Magnification: x200,000 at 8x10cm size.
