Caption: Diphtheria bacterium. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae, the cause of diphtheria in humans. This bacterium is in the process of cell division. C. diphtheriae is a Gram-positive bacterium spread by direct contact with an infected person or in contaminated milk. Once inside its host it multiplies rapidly, producing a powerful exotoxin which severely damages the heart and nerve tissue, leading to death if treatment with antibiotics is not given. Vaccination has made the disease rare in most western countries. Magnification: x23,700 at 6x8.5cm size.
