Caption: Legionella bacterium. Artwork based on a scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Legionella pneumophila bacterium, the cause of Legionnaires' disease. This is a rod-shaped Gram-negative bacillus bacterium. It was named after its first recognised victims, 29 American Legion members who died at a hotel in 1976. The bacteria lives in water tanks and air conditioning systems. The disease, also called legionellosis, causes fatal pneumonic lung damage in the elderly and unfit. It can be treated with antibiotic drugs.
