Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the bacteria Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires' disease. Here, numerous bacteria are seen sectioned at different angles: typically, as at centre, they are rod- shaped Gram- negative bacilli with a single motile flagella. L. pneumophila was first identified as an agent of disease after a mysterious outbreak of pneumonia caused 29 deaths at an American Legion convention in 1976. The bacteria was found living in water-tanks, shower- heads and air-conditioning systems. The disease, also called legionellosis, causes fatal pneumonic lung damage in the elderly and unfit. Magnification: x10,000 at 35mm size.
