Caption: Legionella pneumophila. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of Legionella pneumophila bacteria, the causative agent of Legionnaires' disease. Here, a cluster of these rod-shaped gram- negative bacilli bacteria are seen; the single flagellum on each bacterium is not visible. L. pneumophila was first identified 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, can cause fatal pneumonic lung damage in the elderly and unfit. Magnification x3,500 at 35mm size.
