Caption: Tuberculosis bacterium. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium, the cause of tuberculosis (TB) in humans. It is a rod-shaped, gram-positive bacterium that is spread through inhalation. It infects the lungs, but may spread through the lymphatic system to other parts of the body. Pulmonary tuberculosis (consumption) causes a persistent cough followed by difficulty in breathing (dyspnoea) and coughing up of blood (haemoptysis). Extrapulmonary infections include meningitis and inflammation of bone marrow (osteomyelitis). Infections can be treated with antibiotics. Magnification: x25,000 at 6x9cm size.
