Caption: Tuberculosis bacteria. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. These Gram- positive rod-shaped bacteria are the main cause of tuberculosis (TB) in humans. If a bacterium enters the lungs in a droplet coughed or sneezed by an infected person, it multiplies to form a localized bacterial colony (primary tubercle). Normally the immune system destroys the tubercle. Sometimes, however, the infection can spread to other parts of the body (with potentially fatal results), or lie dormant before becoming active again years later. Magnification unknown.
